#PicturePromptChallenge by Patience



And the path stretched out,
the golden bricks
beckoning her toes
to turn and follow,
to run towards
the darkness,
the unknown destinations
idling at the end of the road.
beyond the curtain
separating brave from weak,
she saw the beauty
in the blind
and fantasy
in the futile.
Tangled branches
of regret and resolve
couldn’t stop her
from digging the diamonds
out of the depths
of the earth
her feet were buried in.
She would take them
and run.
She would fight her way through
just to see the pale blue sky
above the white foam waves
she knew was waiting
beyond the black.

  1. From the opening lines to the closing ones, this is excellent! A great reminder never to be put off by the obstacles life puts in your way, but to always strive to reach your goals and snatch what “diamonds” may present themselves.
    A lovely piece, well done!

  2. This is so lovely. A perfect flow for going after what you want and need. Loved “digging the diamonds”. Really beautiful poem.

  3. Thank you all! I’m so glad you enjoyed my interpretation and I’m thankful that I was able to contribute to this great challenge. And thanks for likes and follows on my other platforms. 🙂 🙂 🙂
