Welcome to my Friday afternoon paint chip prompt. There are other paint chip prompts out there, but they’re very precise in what they ask for. Mine is open ~ write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “cowboy boots” and/or “glass slippers.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF, if you wish

🌀🌀🌀

I have no glass slippers, no fairy godmother

No one to wave the magic wand and transform everything

No Prince Charming waiting for me on those palace steps

I have my wits and grit to build my future

I trust myself and don’t rely on others to perform miracles

Whoever is destined to be my hero

Needs to have his head fixed the right way around

He may ride a horse or wear cowboy boots

But needs to be in tune with my reality

On a foggy morning
Standing on the water’s edge
Bracing against the morning chill


Looking ahead
The adventure is about to begin
As I step on the ship of my dreams


Sailing away
No looking back
No regrets, no qualms
It’s a brave new world

PCF 1 – Ocean Whisper/ Summer Breeze

Paula is the host of this new prompt.

Welcome to my Friday afternoon paint chip prompt. There are other paint chip prompts out there, but they’re very precise in what they ask for. Mine is open ~ write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “ocean whisper” and/or “summer breeze.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF, if you wish. Prompt will continue until December 31.

➰➰➰

The ocean whispers are carried on the summer breeze

Calling my name asking me to trust myself again

It’s been a while since I mustered the courage

To venture on an adventure all on my own

To explore, to seek, and to conquer

In the turbulent ocean

➰➰➰
