12 January: dVerse Visions


Stop sign at the corner, 
scorched grass 
and a small house 
with two frontage windows, 

painted pea green and peeling. 
Red roof and no chimney, 
wooden porch, 
two broad steps.

A girl with long legs, 
face pale as snow turned hard as stone, 
black hair long as a day can stretch, 
tossing a red ball in the air.

A car in the drive 
furry dice from the mirror 
and Virgin Mary 
glued to the dashboard. 

A dog jumps off the porch, 
runs after a red ball that disappears 
under a car that 

doesn't see the stop sign.

  1. I absolutely love, love this! Gorgeous work done, Misky! Especially; “painted pea green and peeling.
    Red roof and no chimney, wooden porch, two broad steps.” I can visualize it so clearly. ❤️❤️❤️


    1. Thank you! Glad you liked reading it.


  2. This feels quite dark. Was it a nightmare? Poor little dog. I love the artwork.


    1. Not a dream. I rarely remember dreams. It’s something that happens all too often in neighbourhoods with traffic.

  3. A wonderful ekphrastic, Misky! My favourite line is ‘black hair long as a day can stretch’ – what an image!


    1. Thanks, Ingrid!

  4. I thought too it was a retelling of a nightmare. Had my hand over my mouth at the end 🥲
