9 word challenge/Open Mic Night

This week’s 9 words were:

fog, confusion, time, truth, mountain, sepia, talons, edge, fear

and the poem I composed using them and shared at Open Mic Night goes like this …

Having scaled the mountain of truth
facing each fear head on
amidst the fog of confusion
I met along the way
I felt the careful grasp
as manicured talons
held me on the path.

Time passes too quickly.

Always on the assent
I wander
Sepia trees
stare down at me
from the edge of
a “Once Upon A Time” world
where Beast met Beauty

and time …
passed all too quickly.
