sighed song shivers now

through snaking arms of trees

lone bird at twilight

      You are it Audrey! Your words have strength, form and personality. You could write a one word poem and make me cry. Thanks.

      A Hiaku. Short, packing a punch. Hang on little bird. The spring will come. I feel for you.

      Love it, Audrey.

      Dear Audrey ~ What is this intriguing image? Dripping icicle branches all in a sepia tone?

      The alliteration of the poem smoothly slips from my lips. Such sad sad poems coming forth today.

      Blessings
