Yogurt in the Dingle


Friday 5 at Poefusion This week's words are ochre, straw, gravel, crash, yogurt




ochre dyed straw
jam-packed the dingle’s
dry creekbed gravel

first crash of thunder ~
that potato truck from hell ~
drove the downpour

spun the bitter seeds
into lustrous neap tides
of mabe peach yogurt

I see a short break has NOT diminished your ablities only enhanced them......


Geez did I use some big words there or what?

I'm so glad you're recovering Sue, but I'm sad you had difficulties. I hope you know, I'm sure you know how much love and caring there is out here in blogworld for you. It's hard to do much from long distance, but you're in our thoughts and prayers.
