Shawna at Rosemary Mint challenges us this week with these words: carom, pygmy, glistening, spry, chalet, electric, sprig, aver, callow, manic.


Chalet di Montagna

caroms through the valley,
electric explosions echo
off mountain sides
littered with pygmy
sprigs of early spring.
Spry lightning dances the cloud-tops,
layers of white silence falls below,
covering the hidden chalet
where youth races in callow,
manic urgency to aver its vows –
glistening skin, melting sighs,
the only storm they know.

    Hee hee hee. You said “pygmy sprig.”

    These are very pretty and happy lines: “glistening skin, melting sighs,
    the only storm they know.” I like the tie-in between the first line and the last.

    I was kind of hoping for morbid, I have to say. But this was nice too. 🙂

  2. Unlike Sherry and probably because I go to morbid way too easily, I loved how light this was but I agree with her, “pygmy sprig” is inspired.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
