Nice write, Sue! Quicksilver gives an impression of disappearing quickly.In the morning light it did apparently!

I like both this and your last wrenching one very much. They are lovely succinct and apt responses to the prompt and are little poems that could work without the pix. Take care, k.

You know how to form the perfect words. I love, 'midday lights.' Really sets a mood.

This is sheer genius. So many interpretations and all - possible!

Stretching every which way ... multiple personalities, split identities ... painful all around.

i like the three faces of eve concept

Stafford Ray said...

Three faces of someone... I always thought Eve was recognisable by her three fig leaves!
That gives me an idea for a limerick. No, you will have to wait!

Clever, this. And what's more, delightful. What more could anyone ask?
