Splendid desolation

It took an enemy
to shatter
her vagary –
the vagueness
that had kept her
from coming alive.

From now on
it was going to be
a bristling breeze.

– James Steerforth ( © 2008 )

Written for 3WW CXV involving enemy, shatter and vague.

    Like finally living life rather than just surviving it. Conflicts/trials serve as trigger mechanisms in this case. Thank you for sharing this thought-provoking piece. Cheers. Have a blessed new year ahead.
