hiding there-
yet aura makes known
of your presence


musty old letter
bringing in tears-
tears me apart

  1. Thank you for the lovely inspiration. Peace, JP/deb

  2. I am so happy that i can see Mr Linky again.

    Thanks for the prompt Gautami.

  3. so many levels to Gautami's prompt word and verse here

    for me spectral conjured a childhood game ~ imagining floating up in the air and then spinning the room ~ but with a child's twist of playful self-delusion

  4. Gautami--
    Thank you for this trickster prompt!

    As usual, I resisted it, but when got down to it, it was really fun and inspiring.

    Thanks--as ever!

  5. Thank you, Gautami --
    I had conjured up angels of death driving along on the highway creating mass chaos. But I ran out of time, sorry. ;-)
    Please read my appology, thanks.

  6. Hi, thanks for the prompt, it's the first time I've posted here...

  7. Apparently I fell off the first linky lou widget, so if you see me twice...hmmm.

  8. This one took me a while, but was a good opportunity to give voice to my reflections on a major event during this past week.
