“Bluebird’s Journey” by Jackie Hurlbert. who authorised the use of some of her paintings for DVERSE”s Poetics prompt.

He could have chosen to fly alone

light as air, weightless as feather
He could soar higher, go farther

on his own. But he brought me along
on his fantastical ride

– loneliness would not weigh him down –
He and I, we journey as one.



DVERSE POETS’ PUB Poetics prompt.  We are writing a piece inspired by the paintings of Jackie Hurlbert.


P.S.  Another one


every word you say

acquire a life of its own

careful what you tweet.
