Thursday 14 December, 2006












Prompt:

streets i have known...



Silent sentinel
Beckoning showing the way
Familiar compass





Over trodden soil
Marked by tree, brook, rock
Steps quicken to find



New places or former
Eyes, fingers, nose recognize
Markers in time




Look for your streets here

Rel, I love what you did here. Amazing how you can say so much with so little. Your words are carefully chosen.

Morning Rel. The poem adds to the photos and gives life to streets that are familiar yet unknown.

Mysterious and alluring, and so much said with so little. Great achievement.

late but better than not at all-i don't know what to say that won't sound like a parrot. The pictures and such few words worked beautifully-keep it up.

It's funny that you posted the pic of that stamp. I bought my Christmas cards in March when we were at Disney*W*rld. They are tinkerbell with these exact same snowflakes on them. I picked up stamps last week and guess which ones they gave me??
Worked out perfectly.
I hope all is well.
