My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Haiku Reflections: Still, Summer Night



Also submitted for the OSI prompt: Lonely


PS: On a much happier note, stop by Veggies… for an upbeat and optimistic  Thanksgiving greeting. 🙂 I was writing for the prompt and what this photo brought to mind, not where I am at right now!
