Midweek Motif ~ Surprise!
If only life could be serene with no upheavals and few changes in relationships. No surprises, please! But for waking up from the laziness that threatens daily perception? Nothing is better than surprise.
When were you last pleasantly surprised?
Your challenge: Write a new poem with surprise as a recurring motif. The poem itself need not surprise, but if you can wake us up a little through a pleasant surprise, do!
