C is for Cascade

C is for Cascade

Today I decided to check out Shadow Poetry and find a poem type that starts with a C and I found Cascade. A delightful poem type that you can find the description for here.

If you want to play with your words and see where they will lead you, choose a word and write to your heart’s content. There are many different types of poetry, you can explore one or explore them all. Don’t worry about whether it is good enough, just write.

The shackles binding her in place fell to the ground.
She discovered a freedom never felt before.
Smiling into the sun, she laughed and walked away.


She didn’t know her prison was her own making.
She longingly looked out over the horizon.
The Shackles binding her in place fell to the ground.


The door opened and suddenly she had choices.
Stepping out the breeze gently stroked her hair and face.
She discovered a freedom never felt before.


Now was her chance to be who she was meant to be.
She didn’t hesitate or think to look backward.
Smiling into the sun, she laughed and walked away.

    • Thank you Patricia, this will probably be my last poem on here. I feel like I’m fighting an uphill battle. I’ve taken on too much and It seems more people like my recipes over my poetry. Thanks for being so supportive especially when I know poetry really isn’t your thing.
