The Power of Imagination (A Crown Cinquain)

Colleen’s weekly challenge,

what do you see photo prompt,

Listen
Can you hear it
An echo from the past
Mysteries lost within fossils
Untold

Observe
Use the mind’s eye
Release your inner child
And see the world that used to be
Explore

Whisper
and be agile-
whilst in this great big world
For giants reigned, not all benign
Wondrous

Beauty
The green of old
shimmers like gems bestowed
I dream of what the world can be
Sublime

Be bold
Perspicacious
Solve extinction’s riddle
And save what’s now endangered
Believe

.


For Colleen’s challenge this week, we are to use synonyms for the words Enigma and Nimble.
I joined this with Sadje’s #Whatdoyousee photo prompt.

It was really fun working on these together.
I don’t usually join prompts and I won’t make a habit of it but I hope you enjoy this.

Imagination is the birth of innovation, may we imagine a greener world and thus innovate around that theme.

Stay blessed and stay loving

        Writing is not much of a problem but reading is, so I am posting less.

    When we can let our imaginations run loose, I think we can turn back the hands of time. Or at least we can be taken to other spaces πŸ˜‰
