Magpie 50: Instincts...

Prompt Photo by Tess Kincaid
Challenge from Magpie Tales

prickly winter trees
 stripped of green leaves
darkened trunks
buried in frost and snow
speckled with bits of  red
 the last of fall...
up ahead
 a clearing to see
will it lead
 up or down...
will there be
 denser trees...
will the curve
 go left or right...
only the instincts
guide
there are no signs...

or are there?

Nice! There are always signs. It just that sometimes we don't always see them. Have a good weekend.

I love your poetry, Donna, and I'm glad to see that you are getting more well known all the time (FishHawk's shout out). I always enjoy coming over here. It's like a comfy place to hang out. :-)

Donna, do you remember when you started and felt that no one might even want to hear your voice? I remember thinking that you had so much to share and a unique way of putting your soul out there for us to know. Well, SEE?? Your blog IS a "Comfy place to hang out."

Tumblewords: Thank you so much...exactly! Keep moving forward...never give up.

FishHawk: I am so flattered! Thank you so much! I will hop over and visit the link...WOW! What a surprise!

120 Socks: Thank you, I appreciate your gracious comment.

Thisisme: I toally agree...we have to trust to see them. There are always posibilities if we look and listen. You have a great weekend too!

DJan: Thank you so much! I so appreciate the comfy place to hang compliment, because it is exactly how I hope every visitor feels...but visits from friends are always so special to me and mean so much. I am in shock with FishHawk's "shout out" and will be checking out the link and visiting other blogs...

Jetty: You are too kind...hey sweetie, how the heck are you? I will be over to visit later on... Thank you so much...and to think I almost deleted this blog in the beginning...

You paint the picture beautifully. The signs are not always obvious. Nice Magpie.
