I am stealing the line, I've won my bid for
Laura Purdie Salas has her 15 Words or Less Poem Challenge today, with a picture of a storm brewing over a skyline. Here's my offering today. It reminded me of a storm coming in over the trees and bluffs of Hokah, Minnesota, when we lived there - and LaCrosse, Wisconsin, when I taught there back a lifetime ago! It's been long enough that I can look at it differently; back then it was much more serious. Not sure I ever smiled when a storm laughed overhead. Especially that one that leveled the home we were building and strew the broken pieces of the house over the valley. Not funny at all, unless you ARE the storm.
|This was not in MN - but in ME one night while out riding around.|
Firs and bluffs
Tickle the sky
As tears tumble
From storm’s eye.
