Flash 55-Public Speaking

Looking for a place
A spot of blue
Where doubt weighs
Amidst the clouds
Nothing, the
Sun peeking out
All is possible
Though worry
Like dark clouds
Floats past my
Mind’s eye
Talking loudly
Thunder rumbling
As I laugh back
In the distance
The fear
Walking center
I speak from

Magpie Tales-Sotto Voce

voices whisper
in my dreams
some long gone
some just gone 
but none forgotten
cause me to smile
 and laugh
trying to catch up
 on the latest news
I awake
tears running
down my cheeks
then I remember
and smile
