for dVerse & Twiglet #176

Two Views

from the woods
from the lake
that was the view
from her bed.

she woke with
savaged hair and
a thumping head,
the sun was
a knife in her
blue fire eyes.

and the trees
from the woods
by the lake
with a view
of her bed
laughed at what
she did all night.

  1. I like the repetition from the first stanza in the last stanza along with the laughing of the trees. It makes me wonder what she was doing all night.


  2. Oh, I like the idea of the trees laughing back. I’m sure they wonder what we are, such foolish, shortlived, rushing creatures. I love the subtle use of the prompt.


  3. I like the secrets that only you and the trees know.


  4. Ah, open windows … The trees see!
    Made me think of the comic character “The Shadow… knows…” (he was a superhero).
