Tender Stalk Nov26 by melodylowes Tender stalk, the time has come to stand alone against the winds that howl and seek to beat a drum to dictate what your heart rescinds; frailty, stand strong and true, though wind blow cold, and night bleed blue.

Thank you! 🙂
Absolutely love the photo! Beautiful words as well.
Thanks Daisy! My son will be graduating in the spring… *sigh*
Wow-Wonderful, Melody–I LIKE it a lot!
PS–the last 2 lines have the feel of a Commando Caddo battle cry. We ARE Victorious–Overcomers with Holy can-do Spirit!! (I’ll settle down now and eat a turkey sandwich…)
Turkey-to-go – yum! And you let those Commando Caddo-style cries loose so they don’t build up pressure and BLOW us all away one day! *giggle*
Thank you, Caddo! I guess we all have tender bits – some more than others, depending on where we’re at in our journey.
Only the perspective of a cold SK wind gives the full perspective of the metaphor. Nicely done. I continue to be amazed at how many poems you produce.
🙂 I guess finding my voice at midlife means I spill words all over the place! There seems to be a lot to say… I always wonder if it will dry up once I’ve had my say, so I write while the words are in my head just in case they stop one day!
I loved that, ‘night bleed blue’! Great job, Melody!
