An Island Paradise

The Sunday Whirl
The given words:
Bear,bend,bird,bridge,fallen,heaven,island
lane,meadow,retreat,rock,unstable,wild


Bear in mind that
A bend of the road
Or a fallen bridge
May not be such
An obstacle

A meadow in heaven’s
Likeness is a savior in a
Lane of peace a likely
Retreat from
Birds of prey

It may not rock the
Unstable nature of a
Wild imagination but
Can well be a catalyst

An island paradise
Is still within reach!

Written for Brenda's hosting of Sunday Whirl Wordle #115 and Poets United's : Poetry Pantry #156
