Weather for Totally Optional Prompts

Totally Optional Prompts offers: Weather

Southern Shifts

she holds her breath
three days at solstice
when the sun stands still

summer days condense
tree shadows unfold early
and night steps ever closer

black tracks slash the day
and the sun begins to leave
she holds her breath

My poetry books North of Summer and South of Winter are now available at Amazon through a pilot program by Lulu Publishing and as always, available from my LuluBookstore.

Your images evoke a stillness I just want to stop and take time to watch. Beautiful. I guess you could say the new Transformers movie has left an impression on me as I'm seeing it here in your artwork. Hope all is well. Have a great night.

i am mourning the shortening days already.. but thrilled to have the length of daylight we have for the summer months..

Powerfully done - all of them.
Yes, the daylight is dwindling now.

I like the middle part a lot - though I am not a summer person - I can understand wanting to prolong summer days - there's nothing like summer
