Daily Prompt



Carefree girl on swing

Tethered to desk and steel quill, toes rapping, fingers tapping

an ever so slight facial mapping explodes epiphany

eliciting colorful ephemeral memories of bangles

 jangling on a breeze, swatting bees

plucking leaves, climbing trees

carefree days with not a worry

running, skipping through the trees, grass-stained knees

lips glossed nature’s nectar

she sighs  while tethered to less breezy moments

a girl sprightly as the leaves

without a care

an image of an insouciant self
