Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

This week for Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 148 Colleen Chesebro has given us the prompt words ‘Empty and Space’ and I have selected the synonyms ‘Hollow and Distance

Butterfly Cinquain ‘Rejection’

Silence
magnifies time
and distance between us
and your rejection leaves my heart
hollow.
The promises we made that day
are scattered in the wind
and dreams have turned
to dust.
