Writings and Witterings

black ink


tumbleweed blew
across blank vellum
for years

no mark etched
save with blood
and salt tears

black ink still
awaits the finale

to score
inscribe more

  2. Polly this doesn’t waste a letter and leaves this reader feeling the scratches across those pristine pages. You are on fire!

    Seriously, WP needs to come up with an alternative to the like button which in this case doesn’t begin to cut it. 😉


  3. Beautiful – and sad – brings a lump to the throat of a fellow writer 🙂 xxx
