Fractals Photos Poetry Prose Watercolor

honed chisels strip
the glue of guilt
in slivers almond fine

flinders fly while
from a refuge of rock
old loss is planed away

smooth form bestowed ~
like lackluster limbo

Rock Wall original watercolor by Sue

North of Summer available at Lulu Publishing

Beautiful watercolor and the poem to match.

I like "flinders fly"

Really nice poem, Sue! And I loved the line "in slivers almond fine" -- very clever. And your watercolor is beautiful -- I love the colors in it.

I really like the phrase "...from a refuge of loss, old loss is planed away." If only it were that simple! The poem and image are a great match.

That is lovely; and I like the way the picture bleeds into the frame; pulls it in and makes it part of the painting. Just lovely

(puffs of love - below - very clever)

Your poetry is itself beautifully honed.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

This does have the feel of something painstakingly honed from a much larger original.

I really like the sounds my lips make while whispering this poem.

The ending came a bit as a surprise for me, but a surprise that made sense to me. I like this a lot, Sue.

Very spare poem, but with great word combinations. I love that watercolor.
