Take a journey with me,
combine visions and sights,
embrace all that we see,
with surprise and delight.

Watch a unique snow flake,
trickle down from the sky,
as friends form frosty lakes,
in exquisite designs.

Observe a grain of sand,
under a microscope,
sprinkle some on your hand,
witness magic and hope.

Gaze at a moth orchid,
stare up close, eye to eye,
her glare is reported,
to make hearts start to fly.

Look out for the fruit flies,
they have ants on their wings,
frightened predators cry,
from the fear a swing brings.

A great miracle seen,
male seahorses give birth,
this magnificent scene,
is a wonder on earth.

Moonwashed Weekly Challenge – December 06, 2022
Prompt – Exquisite


Simulation, tale or dream,
nonsensical secret scheme.
What is real? How would we know?
Will this knowledge help us grow?

If eyes could see beyond air,
Will we dare to be aware?
Some realities are rough,
but can heal with a soft touch.

Life appears to feel so tough,
yet transforms to smoky puffs.
Will true wisdom be exposed?
Can eyes open, if sealed closed?

Meditate, inhale deep peace,
with intentions underneath.
Will the heart regain control?
Can we break the mold that holds?

Can we swim within the breeze?
Will freedom bring unity?
Second chances mend stripped keys,
liberates humanity.

One encounter at a time,
free caged thoughts to ease the mind.
Simple gestures souls may find,
can transform dark thoughts to kind.

Prompt – Nonsensical


One day in time,
I walked life free.
Laughs echoed chimes,
swung from tall trees.
Danced, skipped, and sang,
knew dreams would be.
Inner bells rang,
believed in me.

One cloudy night,
you brought the rain.
Stripped away light,
made me insane.
Held back my glee,
I could not gain.
Introduced me
to constant pain.

One sunny day,
my heart grew cold,
Blood pumped away,
timid turned bold.
As sunlight hit,
regained control.
Our road was split,
grasped what you stole.

One afternoon,
looked at the sky,
transient moon,
was painted high.
Reflective hues
twinkled my eyes,
showed I am you,
then faded by.

One part of me
no longer hides,
now forced to see,
there are two sides.
Was never gone,
still lives inside,
combined as one,
protects and guides.

Prompt – Transient


Dark grey skies are expected,
scattered tears fill up the day,
deep unease is projected,
sense deep peace may lead the way.

Search inside,
then decide,
inner guide,
or cold pride.

Overcast swiftly passes,
drags along brisk doubtful thoughts.
Calmness drizzles, love splashes,
dappled sun rays offer support.

Swiftly heal
how heart feels,
ego peels,
light reveals.

Puffy clouds carry raindrops,
to expose bright rainbow hues,
hydrate worn dry thirsty crops,
that provide hopes to pursue.

Erase lines,
dreams combine,
let soul shine,
feel divine.

Nature rings with loud thunder,
emotions vibrate inside.
Eyes quickly fill with wonder,
as outside clear visions shine.

Profound clues,
sprinkle truths,
minds will choose,
outer views.

Prompt – Dappled


Magnetic strong words,
attached to my mind,
attracting concerns,
no longer confined.

I turn them around,
but they just repel,
surround and compound,
disarming my shell.

Magnetic sources,
with intentions said,
unbalanced forces,
bounce upon my head.

Replays the lyrics,
that form with each word,
unstable spirits,
smug ego transferred.

Magnetic sharp tunes,
all come to a halt,
clear off my scarred wounds,
removes grains of salt.

Embraces and shields,
directionless souls,
visions cleared and healed,
to regain control.

Prompt – Directionless

Once More

Fuel my heart,
ignite my mind.
Light the sparks,
as paths align.

A first breath
is reassigned.
Prior deaths
are by design.

Second chance
to rectify.
One more prance
to clarify.

I am now
what I once judged.
Promised vows
will clear past smudge.

Bashing you,
reflects on me,
painting views,
of what I see.

Walk through life,
yet once again.
Light will guide,
as I transcend.

Prompt – Trancending


Swallow scoops of gold sunlight,
feel them twinkle in my eyes.
Swim within the vast blue sky,
floating soul reaches new heights.

Whimsical vibrating sounds,
sparkle bright hues through the clouds.
Joyful gifts fly all around,
swaying chimes whisper so loud.

A gentle breeze strums my swing,
celestial touch cuts all strings.
hear angelic voices sing,
unfurling feathery wings.

Grazes my head with insight,
gratitude carries delight,
absorbed love shines ever bright,
knowing all will be alright.

Prompt – Celestial


Lights shine for eternity,
swimming through infinity,
provides warm security,
with bright opportunities.

Brilliantly self-formed presence,
strong everlasting essence,
secures every lesson,
stupendous evanescence.

Darkness so mysterious,
appearance quite serious,
immersive experience,
makes head feel so delirious.

Driven imagination,
becomes instant creation,
a balanced application,
forms inner declarations.

Perfectly formed projection,
multi-mirrored dimensions,
bounces off self-reflections,
while building new perceptions.

A mystical transmittance,
to balance off resistance.
United co-existence,
reaches a greater distance.

Prompt – Stupendous


Deep inside the forest trail,
a clear mirage helps dreams sail.
Enchanted tree, exposed roots,
forces ego to dilute.

Forbidden to all but few,
concealed from foul tainted views.
Accepts those with will to change,
tender balance in exchange.

Holds pure minds, polishes stains,
clears the poor so nice remains.
Reveries cascade so free,
a display healed eyes can see.

Offers a warm loving home,
with a secure structured dome.
Protects from all outer wrongs,
feeds great peace, makes hearts feel strong.

Carry pictures deep inside,
principles become a guide.
Walk upon fall crunchy leaves,
at last opened to receive.

Sun rays fill from crown to feet,
nature’s music sounds so sweet.
Vibrations flow through the soul,
twinkle kindness and control.

Prompt – Forbidden

Fall into Autumn

Amber colored breezy hues
Surprise eyes with pretty views

Air blows softly, colors change
Unique structures rearrange
Tip toe on leaves as they crunch
Unhinge bliss, jump on a bunch
Music whistles through the air
Nature’s beauty everywhere

Leaves swiftly change their green tone
Earth toned colors proudly shown
Arrives late in September
Visits until December
Endlessly enhancing days
Summer pushes it to play

Fall brings winds with cooler breeze
Autumn provides joyful peace
Letting go of what is old
Leveling warm days with cold
