Gut Feeling


Passion hits me

Hard, deep

for keeps

On the side

Of my emotions

All I can do is check for bruises

    consider being lucky that passion hits , otherwise it is not a passion

    That picture is an amazing find. Full of emotion–frustration and hope. Lo I like your poem. Left me wanting more. One tiny suggestion: On this side of my emotions (If it doesn’t change your meaning).

    Love the picture!!! Talking of guts and passion, the picture reminds me of the passion fruit hanging up there so high but no matter for optimistic eyes.


  9. Short, sweet and a direct shot to the point. I must learn how to say more with less words. 🙂

  12. What’s a passion worth chasing for if it does not come with bruises? 😊

    I am curious; do you start with a poem or a picture? The picture you chose is always so perfect for your poem.

    Forget the bruises. You are getting stronger. Hit back harder…. For you are still holding onto your passion 🙂
