Short But Sweet…I Hope

Poetry Prompt Day 20: Let’s talk about love, baby.

I didn’t do the poetic form, the Loop poem. I’ll give that a try another day. ย And, today’s poem is rather short but I hope it’s as strong as I felt when I wrote it. I did try to make it longer but every stanza I wrote just paled beside it. So, I left it as is. Hopefully, it speaks volumes.

Drought

By Jesi Scott

 

Like a desert with no rain,

Iโ€™m thirsting for water.

Quench this arid land,

And let the oasis flower.

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Ofโ€ฆ. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they arenโ€™t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
