Celestial Moment

Sun sets sweetly, with a yawn,
winks to greet the break of dawn.
Smiles upon the end of day,
gorgeous sight on full display.

Honey covered gingered sky,
watches as wild birds fly high.
Aimlessly dance in the air,
whistle loudly without care.

Shadowed beams highlight dark winds,
earth stands still as dim minds spin.
Walks on water, twinkles bright,
magically lights the night.

Amber painted view above,
makes hearts instantly feel love.
Embraces with a warm hug,
feels so cozy, safe, and snug.

Golden tinted glittered breeze,
awesome joy enlaced with peace.
Serene vision, eyes absorb,
bubble of hope in vast orb.

Autumn nights sway the proud trees,
nature’s beauty flows so free.
Hopeful outlooks are believed,
clarity is well received.

Prompt – Gingered Sky

Seek and Find

Look around, search deep inside,
try hard to identify,
which adviser serves to guide,
will it stand to testify?

Careless ember creates fire,
shocked trees paralyzed by flames.
Gush of wind brings dark desires,
rain showers drive away blaze.

Fluffy clouds have pillow fights,
crash gleams with beams of pure light.
Paint rainbows within the sky,
smiles of hope embrace sad eyes.

Pretty, ugly, good, and bad,
unrivaled truths no heart had.
Anchored bags, heavy and sad,
bring warm love to make souls glad.

Inner voice, signals whats right.
cover fears that fall at night.
Clear glow transforms dark to bright,
there to supply deep insight.

Shiny stars, twinkles displayed
moonlight causes gloom to sway.
Sunlight brightens each new day,
so true self can lead the way.

Prompt – Unrivaled

Seasonal Mix

Winter made me feel so warm,
snuggled up to watch snowstorms.
Singing kettles every night,
in strong arms, I cuddled tight.

Spring appeared, to change the scene,
turned the ground into bright green.
Raindrops laid on happy leaves,
all erased by sunny thieves.

Summer approached feeling cold,
parting hearts had lost their hold,
icy drinks filled empty hands,
so fogged heads could understand.

Autumn ignited new starts,
sprung in to brighten pure hearts.
Brightly showered rainbow hues,
light-filled views all became true.

Every climate is perceived,
outer thoughts are interweaved,
inner mirrors that reflect,
all the thoughts minds could project.

Paint and Sip

Purple echoes, whisper truths,
calmness cascade, stress reduce.
Lilac covered silhouettes,
peaceable hues chase regrets.

Lavender skies on display,
puffy clouds create bouquets.
Iris enhances full moon,
sweet floral scents make hearts swoon.

Amethyst thoughts shine so high,
breaths escape within a sigh.
Thirsty lips savor grape wine,
last brush stroke completes design.

Magenta acrylic paint,
masterpiece flawlessly quaint.
One last look and quick goodbye,
pull away so art could dry.

Prompt – Peaceable

Break the Cycle

Hurt people hurt others,
I have often been told.
Invisible bruises
can turn warm into cold.

Inflict great discomforts,
somehow cozy control.
Pridefully empowered,
feeds inner darkened holes.

They never imagined
life would end up like this,
pain given to others,
shoves them down an abyss.

When opened eyes can see,
all the heartaches they caused,
Guilt will grasp from within,
force scorn to take a pause.

Once profound aches all stop,
they can find hidden roots,
To expose a dark past,
will make ego fall mute.

As held trauma resolves,
newfound peace, hearts will find.
Empathy for others,
can help this world feel kind.

Prompt – Somehow Cozy

Sweet Escape

Stressful moments arrive each day,
her mind creates a hideaway.
Delightful, warm, pure sacred place,
where peaceful thoughts always embrace.

Lavender petals bloom above,
to fit the rooftop like a glove.
It helps this cabin come alive,
allows goals to swiftly revive.

Smoky twinkles of amber lights,
convince her eyes to shine so bright.
Illuminates hopeful daydreams,
comfort wild thoughts, silence loud screams.

Colorful mushrooms celebrate,
floating wishes accelerate.
pretty birds sing as flowers dance,
soft butterfly kisses enhance.

Forest trees stand at attention,
eases worries, removes tension.
Leaves sways away unhappy blues,
then clear thick fog with serene hues.

Euphoric breezes fill her lungs,
candy coated words grace her tongue.
Magical lyrics guide her song,
beautiful visions feel so strong.

Prompt – Hideaway


Deceptive manipulation,
builds up forceful situations.
Turns all wants into frustrations,
great exhausted compensation.

Clouds absorb each pure intention,
to enslave participation,
kills off any motivation,
fleeting bonds, fake conversations.

Never allow domination
to control your navigation,
or to guide self exploration
for outer gratification.

Inner voice, imagination,
can conquer all confrontations,
with no need for explanations,
life becomes your own creation.

Prompt – Fleeting

Morning Tea

Sweet honey tea,
mimics bright views,
absorbs pure scene,
sips amber hues.

Sun kissed by herbs,
magical coat,
relaxes nerves,
relieves sore throat.

Glimmers of hope,
fills faithful cup,
broadens slight scope,
promise lights up.

Sugary smile,
candy glossed lips,
day dreams compile,
hesitance slips.

Nostalgic brew,
blissful retreat,
sweeps away blues,
heart beats complete.

Gold morning dust,
ambitious rays,
inspires trust,
anoints each day.

Moonwashed Weekly Challenge #154 – August 01 , 2023
Prompt – Sun Kissed

Self Motivated

Pleads with herself to make a mark,
cold shadowed fears play in the dark.
Always knows how to light the spark,
but hesitance whispers loud barks.

Clumsy vigor loses its pace,
runs quickly while standing in place.
Prays for the slightest touch of grace,
so scared to fall straight on her face.

All knots come loose to swiftly lift,
stands bold and proud, embraces shift.
Inner strength smolders ever swift,
non committal, deep burdens drift.

Every new step carries great force,
serene peace travels through her pores.
Focuses views like a racehorse,
creates brave moves, guided by source.

Prompt – Non committal


Wake up and go,
do what you do,
laugh like a fool,
try to play cool.
Go through the day,
no time to play,
emotions sway,
in disarray.
Hold a brave face,
keep it in place,
another chase,
an unknown race.
Good afternoon,
never too soon,
horrible swoon,
howl at the moon.
Another night,
turn off the light,
thoughts hold too tight,
slumber picks fight.

Wake up and go,
love what you do,
a happy fool,
naturally cool.
Go through this day,
make time to play,
emotions sway,
enjoy sun rays.
Bright smiling face,
that stays in place,
no need to chase,
effortless race.
Good afternoon,
time flies too soon,
internal swoon,
hello full moon.
A better night,
peaceful and light,
hold pillow tight,
slumber wins fight.
