a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

I Cover My Eyes

I cover my eyes
maybe 
your trite words
will no longer
  bind my spirit
mind the spell
aimed at me
I sing 
a butterfly
flying free
miles away
the land 
holds
sign 
of spring
You 
no longer
have power
to scorch
to burn me
ring you chime
sing your lies
I do not hear
I cover my eyes
I have joined The Sunday Whirl Wordle 196 with the picture prompt from Magpie Tales.

You're the second person I've come across who is doing both the words and the picture prompts. I realized it as soon as I saw "trite." Interesting to see the different directions.

WORDS failed me when a SPELL took AIM and placed a butterfly on my face. My MIND is blown and MAYBE my SPIRIT will LAND my MIND in the land of CHIME..
HOOOOO HAAAA...please don't SCORCH me for making fun.

Grace,

I definitely can relate with this poem because there are plenty of things that I turn a blind eye to. Most of which are the attitudes of others being negative. Thank you for sharing this poem with us.

The words came out different for you.. but they worked well together..

Gail, you did an excellent job with the words and picture prompt. Def some thoughts to ponder on here. Sometimes we choose not to see.

That's telling him you can get on without him. Ssh! Don't tell a soul but we could do with some more stronger women.

An effective combination of the two prompts.

To be able to sing the butterfly is a magical thing

I'm always amazed at how one can take those words and spring a poem to life that makes such sound images, I really liked how this read.

You are a fearless writer. I would sit there all day and never come up with that.
