What the world needs

Prompt: What the world needs now is love – Dionne Warwick

With a gentle grip,
she turns you from panoramic vistas

– mountains, oceans,
and meadows of wildflowers –

until you see the chaos
and carnage
we dismiss as
human nature.

Peering up through her lashes,
head tilted,
she whispers

‘What they need now is love.’

And you wonder who she is
to assign you
the impossible.

Hi, I'm Elle. I'm based in Auckland, New Zealand. I'm a moderator at Writing.com, the mother of two gifted children, the wife of a Twitch gaming streamer and the Queen of Unfinished Projects. I've been reading since I was 4 years old, writing poems (badly) since 1994, blogging since 2001 and I started studying photography in 2010. This blog will contain poems, short stories, photos, book reviews and my thoughts on a variety of topics. Hope you enjoy it.
