The next few days will see quick, low-effort responses.  Today’s Poetic Asides challenge on deadlines is apt.  A congregation of deadlines is gathering, plus a happy swing up to my wife in Virginia.

A burning mark merely a smoulder far off
near leaps high into the gut,
a freezing spike desperately motivating
action even if just before
a Cheshire grin spreading flame.

Today’s RWP prompt is a great idea that I must remember, but the Poetic Asides prompt just struck home.
