Bless The Querying Writer.

1000 words.


the deed is done

the gauntlet thrown

the friend of yes

the foe of no

and while their fate

in limbo goes,

bless the querying writers

in between

a rock and a hard dream,

wearing their stories

on their sleeves

and just returned

from imaginary lands

still warm to the touch

of their trusty pens.


On the middle saguaro -- see the woodpecker making a hole for its nest?

  1. This is awesome! What cool pictures too! 😀

  2. Awwww, thank you, ElanaJ! : ) I’m so glad you enjoyed both.

    Did you place your pointer over the bottom photo to read the text? There’s a little extra in that photo you might not see —

    WordPress wouldn’t let me put the photo full-size. : (

    I was just about to go over to your blog — I see you have your Meme up! I’m psyched. And thanks so much for playing Meme with me. : )


  3. Em, I LOVE it.

  4. Thank you, Steph!

    And I LOVE seeing you pop up here.

    Makes me smile big. : )
