Hither and Yon

I started true,
got quickly bored
missing my cue,
my mind unmoored.
In my downfall
my thoughts were all

Hey! My daughter Bee has an Etsy site for “Hand sewn decorative items” – RaccoonStitches! Please check it out!

I happened to see the weekly prompt “willy-nilly” at the “Moonwashed Musings”site and realized it was perfect line seven for a ha’sonnet, and this is what it inspired. If you go to the site I’m sure you will find a lot of wonderful takes on the prompt based on the few I’ve had time to read in my feed.

      1. 🙂 It’s good to see you back so soon in the neighborhood Charmer! After the last post on your site I figured you’d be taking more time away. I hope things are going well for you and you found other interests you can accept filling your time. 😁

    1. Thanks, Eugenia! I haven’t had the time to spend reading lately and just was fortunate to see this prompt. As I said, when I saw “willy-nilly” it popped as a perfect last line for one of my poems. 😄 Enjoy!
