A picture posted on the Writer's forum for me to be inspired and write a poem
The photo from the Quatrain City Contest this week was taken at Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida by Jack Huber
My poem on this picture was
Was this the destiny or you chose to mold into stone?
Hearts that could not hold the moments of love
Crept under the sands of time, and now you stare
Hoping to re-ignite, so that once again you learn to care
Winning entry by Diane Stephenson
In nightmarish dreams, with swollen tongue
I choke on words I cannot speak.
Demented faces swirl but can’t come close
once I awaken from this phantasmagoric world.
And runner-up: Khurshid Alam
Worship to the gods studded in the linoleum.
The sacred murals bless you: they stand guard
against all evils in life and light your ways;
the third eye awakens you to think beyond.
