Monday for One Single Impression

One Single Impression prompts: What's it Like?


yard sale tour
topknots bobbling
pair of quail


May's cornflower sky
turns bruise-purple black
...a portrait background
for a lone white cloud

I have seen and have been a "lone cloud" ... one was beautiful, artistically, the other was uncomfortable ...Tumblewords, you sure make me think and remember. I love yard sale where I find something unique! It feels good.

The second one provided spectacular imagery.

Love yard sales. I used to go to every one I could find with Aunt Mary and Mammaw. Those were the good ole days. Your second poem conveys a strong image of sky and it's beautiful in all its storminess. Your fractal reminds me of a seashell or a jellyfish. Well done. Have a nice day.

Your 'pair of quail' is nice, I'm glad you told us though as to me it is rather abstract.
April showers bring May flowers,
'bruise-purple black' for storms in May?

We suffer to be beautiful, even if we are the sky.

bruise purple black! What a wonderful haunting color.

Lovely post.

Your fractals are always so gorgeous. I think of them for days.

Second one is brilliant.

Deborah Godin said...

Two very immediate and visual images, each in its way. Lovely fractal, too!

What a beautiful picture, really enjoyed both of these as I reflected on the picture.

I bow to your excellence!

These are both wonderful--I like the second one for the imagery, the first for the feeling invoked.

Thank you!

I wandered lonely as a cloud.

the images you paint are achingly beautiful

top knots and quail bobbing in the first…brilliant
the sky dramatically changes to frame the passing of a lone white cloud.

"May's cornflower sky
turns bruise-purple black
...a portrait background
for a lone white cloud ' -

no emotional word appears

-sad /blue /pain ---

but the emotions do -

that is why this little poem is so beautiful ..

The imagery in that second one was wonderful.

JP/deb said...

What it is is the pictures we paint with words. Brilliant. Peace, JP/deb

"May's cornflower sky
