Bless The Querying Writer.
March 9, 2009

1000 words.

Β 

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.

Β 

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