The High Spirited Girl

She thought herself to be lucky-

Always experimenting with art!

Their engines made her appear murky-

Like a fox & coyote, without heart.


She worked hard to sow the seeds. 

Her confidence gave them the blues.

They removed her plants as weeds!

Her name joined their list of taboos.

Their wish - to trample wildflowers!

Some of her plants blossomed lilies.

Flowers & fruits - after hours!

Like oranges - result of pieties!


This poet was never in the soup.

Though in high spirits, she was sober.

Her scent & rhythms played in loop-

Extra zeroes in her bank-account score

This is a 100 words story-poem for Shay's Word Garden.

I have used all the 20 word prompts given by Fireblossom for this week (we were to use any three)

I happen to know such a girl, do you too? Please share your comments below.


  1. Sounds like a success story to me! Thanks for joining us at the List!

  2. I love her to pieces. I'm pleased she found success being eccentric and artistic. What a perfect image you paired your poem with.

  3. What a lovely poem! Thanks for sharing

  4. From Helen ~~~ Brava to you for using all the words! I enjoyed this๐Ÿ’“

  5. Wow! You used all the words! ๐Ÿ˜Š Love this narrative poem, Anita, a progression from outcast/misfit to success but according to her own terms. Good for her! ๐Ÿฅฐ

  6. I am so impressed that you used all of the words, and so well. Very cool story.

  7. Love the spirit of this girl!! An amazing use of all the words Anita! It is wonderful to see you. It has been a long time my friend!
