Magnetic Poetry Saturday Challenge #4 – Life



I’m happy to present my latest poem for this week’s Magnetic Poetry Saturday Challenge, joining in with others at Specks and Fragments.  

This link will take you to a weekly wrap-up of all contributors – there are some very talented people out there!!

I was born to explore

this magic universe

to devour life

never let work

make you a prisoner

drink eternity in 

like velvet champagne

and dance surrounded

by delicious joy

I’m also pleased to announce that the sun has shone brightly all day today after another deluge of rain during the week, but unfortunately we have more rain predicted this week. My poem last week dwelled on the rain and I was left longing for summer.

I feel happy to have had the sun’s warm rays on my body today and I made the most of a lazy Sunday.  With a public holiday tomorrow, a long weekend is a real bonus, as well as a short week at work – never let work make you a prisoner!


Deb 🙂

          I think that’s why I added that bit in Wendy, it’s definitely something to look forward to….

    When I get a chance I am going to give this magnetic poem a go. You make it look easy Deb, and I’m sure it’s not. Louise

      It’s not that hard but I have to get into the zone looking for some sort of lead theme words. I never know what I’m going to end up with until the end, if that makes sense!

      Thank you for your lovely comment. I liked the imagery too especially the line about not letting work make you a prisoner. See what I did there?
