6 Sept: Jane’s Oracle Says

Meanwhile … (revised)

all that crayon grey smoke
pulling heavy on morning mist,
leering at scabby fields seized
by flame, and you feel the heat
of fire asleep under your feet,

and those flames are a herd
of wild camels on the move.

    1. I revised it slightly. Mixed present and past tense drives my batty.

  1. I like the images… scabby fields, a herd of wild camels… those are really strong. (BTW, I’m back to facebook-can you send me a friend request-I lost all my contacts.)

    1. I can’t find you on Facebook using search. I’ll send you an email and we’ll figure it out that way. Should I use your gmail address?


  2. I love this! That’s exactly right, walking on dormant flames.


    1. Thanks. Fabulous crop of words this week.


      1. The first selection I got had apples in it, but the rest didn’t appeal to me much, so I picked another set and kept the apples 🙂
