I shiver at the water’s edge,
Braced against the morning chill;
Squirrels chitter to their friends;
The lake is green and still.
An egret poses like a queen,
Haloed in the pale light;
She may not have all she needs,
But what is here will suffice.
Welcome to my Friday afternoon paint chip prompt. There are other paint chip prompts out there, but they’re very precise in what they ask for. Mine is open ~ write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “water’s edge” and/or “morning chill.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF, if you wish. Prompt will continue until December 31.
Image is mine. Poetry form is a double quatrain.
