dVerse — Poetics — imprint

  Pulled up to the empty parking lot of the restaurant. Amend that, empty except for one giant Yamaha crotch rocket and a man, standing off to the side, looking at the back patio. His back turned so I could get a long look at his long frame in his tan dress pants and matching…

Thursday Inspiration 57 — rise to color

From watery shadow’s limbo Burning embered love does rise To glow on spirit’s tippy toes Monochromatic suffocation Flooded with oxygenated hues Then sighing, recede, and rest.   Paula Light is the host of Thursday Inspiration.  Paula says: This week’s theme is sunset and the picture is below.

My schooner flies towards harbor; Birds drift overhead. Bells tinkle like your laughter; Warm breezes touch like your sighs.   Sarah Weejars is…
