Time to get our syllables and synonyms together in response to Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 133 and this week the prompt words were ‘Plan and Spend’ and I have chosen ‘Intent and Squander’ as my synonyms.
Double Etheree – A Magpie’s Prize by Sally Cronin
of the magpie,
to squander away
to steal the shiny bauble
that was displayed so temptingly
on the sill of the open window,
permitting spring air and thieves to enter.
The bird cared not of the significance
of this pretty locket and its chain,
nor the sadness its theft would bring
to its elderly owner.
It only saw glitter
not faces within
of a love lost.
Down it flew
