three word wednesday

February 27 2008





Apology
Consider
Distant




Without apology
the sun ended the day
as a large red balloon

I could feel the last air
touch my face

the distant moon
didn't even consider
to protect me from the dark

  4. This was really good.

    But I personally think the sun should apologize! Dangit! I don't want the darkness, I want sunshine!

    O:-)

  5. excellent use of the prompts... i miss seeing the sun as you describe it here... it moves over the ridge and out of view here and i never get a chance to see it in all of brilliance......

  7. I love this. It's a nice break from the tack everyone else seemed to feel drawn to, with issues of pride and angst. A beautiful illustration of nature that was quite a refreshing way to end my own day. Have a good night, and thank you so much for swinging by my place today.

  8. I got your message on my post about not being able to comment, but I got your blog to work fine... I left one above :)

    It was the blogs with word verification, not comment verification that woudln't work. Those little pictures of words that you have to type to prove you're a human and not a computer. :)

  10. Wonderful use of the 3WW. Quite a different contrast between other 3WWs. Quite lovely.

  11. That's the universe for you. But it is good we paint a better picture through words.
