A whimsy (inspired by Writer's Island)

A whimsy took me
Raised me up
And carried me away
I held on to it
Tenderly, lovingly
And fed it every day
I watch it growing
Finding expression
Shape and form
And I know one day
It won’t be a whimsy
But the norm

  2. Thanks. I struggled with the last two prompts and just couldn't come up with anything. Some prompts just resonate more than others, I guess :-)

  8. It's funny you should say that. I've just been browsing your poems and admire the way your poems flow without needing to rhyme :-)
