Winter in Rockford, MI. By Chris Galford.
Cold…so cold. High of 14 today. Inside writing, doing my best to hide from the chill. Not as much snow as in the photo – the picture’s from back in 2009 – but the wind and the ice don’t make things any better. On the bright side, a little cocoa and some tiny marshmallows do lead to the occasional Winter-ku…
White sea enfold me
All is silence in the rough
Hands ache summer’s cry.
Photo by Kevin "KJ" Halliday.
in red-lettered caress
dream of verity away
in the passage of time
in the swirl of life
I am Sinking
in achromatic haze.
* This piece was inspired by the above photograph – this week’s photo prompt over at One Stop Poetry for another wonderful One Shoot Sunday. The photographer is KJ Halliday, an Australian photographer with some great insights and fantastic shots. If you’re interested in the man, or in taking up the photo challenge, check out my interview with him today.
Claudio Mufarrege's "The Arrow Shot"
You bind me
But your walls, your halls they cannot hold me
Body broken but the spirit
Rise, swimming in the deep
Recesses of the forgotten—
Mind: sole reality of prison
You forget, but this soul knows,
It reaches through your gray decay
And in the darkness spring forth wings
To flight, unknown, and I am nothing and no one
But here I am,
