Writing Prompt Challenge Submission: Softly He Came/Singledust

Writing Prompt: “The horizon breaks to pieces and the mainline is the twilight”

The submissions for my writing prompt challenge were really innovative and interpreted the prompt in very different and very cool ways.  My guest judges and I plan on announcing a winner within the next ten days but in the meantime, please enjoy these interpretations.  I have included the links to their blogs below so you can enjoy more of their fabulous writing.


Softly he came to me
Like gentle rain on a spring morning
And stayed and left his watermark upon my arid heart

Tenderly he listened to me
Like a flower budding in silent glory
And knew when I needed to be held a little longer gently

Lovingly he caressed my tired soul

Like the gentle strength of a winter waterfall

Unending torrent of tender cascading love and desire flowed

He told me he looked for me in the forest of his dreams

Shaded by autumn leaves and smoke rising from forgotten trees

Never tiring in his search for he knew I would be there waiting patiently

He came from behind a cloud of willows standing tall and valiant

Picking pieces of me off the forest floor left carelessly by those before

And found the spaces it fit right hugging all my broken parts together so tight

Knowing he is here

it’s a joy

I cannot measure

so I exchange sorrow

for laughter

Knowing he will stay

a little while longer

this helps me heal,

be stronger

He is my orange anise

My midnight star

after the twilight’s run

casting me a lifeline

breaking through

my horizon’s sun

  1. This was such a warm and gentle piece. Very romantic and emotional how She patiently waited knowing He would find her. Such a tender love poem. Liked the lines – “Picking pieces of me off the forest floor left carelessly by those before
    And found the spaces it fit right hugging all my broken parts together so tight”. I know that we aren’t puzzle pieces but sometimes it can feel that way and isn’t it so wonderful when there is someone who loves us who can hug all our broker pieces together – tight”!!! Bellissimo, Gina
