10-word poems

my goal and my desire.
Will it ever come?


Absence of conflict
presence of accord
for the whole world.


Winter blues
obliterate summer bronze –
pale people are in fashion

    Peace would be perfect wouldn’t it:)
    Today was the coldest this winter in South East Spain… wind was biting but the sun behind glass scorching.
    Well done these

    Peace…all we have is hope; world accord its natural extension (or lead-in). And yes, pale is the new tan, at least for a while. Wonderful writes all. Thank you.

  5. Nice collection. I can especially relate to the winter blues. Peace, Linda


  6. Two very serious and thoughtful pieces, and one for fun. Rather nice to realize that my pale winter skin is ‘en vogue!’

    The 6 million dollar question. It will not come given the hidden agenda lurking in the minds of the negotiators! Great lines Viv!

    I love them all.


  9. Oh! I too wish for the peace to prevail. Nicely penned.
    And I liked the last one the best. It has a kind of texture to it. 🙂

    as much as i hope for peace i don’t think that we really ever will have that perfect peace here on this world.. it’s sad… i wish it would be different


  11. 2014 was a pretty bad year. But sometimes I think we only see the worst of it because we read the news.

    Three things to hope for every day…

    Of course will come, as specific geography, as temporal times; world peace, unfortunately is almost an oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp. I really like your last stanza, very strong; you certainly rocked this prompt; nice work.

    Viv, I don’t know if peace will ever come. I fear it may not, but I continue to hope. I don’t know how we can ever have absence of conflict in this world. I look at past history and can’t imagine today is all that different. Sigh.

    we can hope for such peace…though i wonder if we are even capable of it, you know…
    ha tis the season of pale people…the girls at school press the dress code less when they
    freeze exposed middrifts…

  19. Right now peace seems like such a hopeless goal. When I lived in France there was a song: “Plus jamais, jamais la guerre!” It sure hasn’t been that way in our lifetimes, has it? Love the last one, too.


  20. Peace and world accordance indeed and I love the contrast of colors in your closing collection…blue/bronze and pale skin… 🙂
