Fallen Star


newly fallen star
alight on fading wood fence
each birth a slow death

Ps. You can read an interview about me and see some of my photos that were offered as prompts at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads. Don't forget to visit the links to the poets to discover the words they wove inspired by my photos. Thank you to Kerry for inviting me, what an honor, and all of the poets. Some of their poems brought tears to my eyes, they are so beautiful!

  4. I do like to notice fallen flowers settling on the ground or upon stone and wood. They are beautiful even as it is the end for them. Great lines.
