join those before us
who planted future orchards
spent petals like snow.

spent petals like snow (beautiful imagery btw)
skim through air onto water
delicate skiffs glide

sunning on a warm boulder
spring thaw has begun

grass begins to green
even when water is slight
then comes the frost tips

white-cold in the morning fog
crunchy under foot.

crunchy underfoot
slipping on stony scrabble
by the river's edge

By the rivers edge
I skim the smoothest stones, and
pray the levies hold

Sometimes it takes me a minute or two. I was reading a few of these then suddenly the light went on.  I realized each post used the last line of the post before.  God I am just brilliant sometimes.  *rofl* :sunny


to the other side
rainbows dance in reflecting
pools of dark water

Now that you've figured it out, get tagging!




pools of dark water
mirroring my mournful mood
opaque and empty

opaque and empty
in the hot afternoon sun
dried up billabong.



Billabong:
A branch of a river or a still backwater or pond, and often one that may noticeably dry up in the dry season.
