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