After The Storm

Not even one last cell
of woven strength
remained rooted
after scarce crows
revisited rain eroded

  1. Tightly done. Seems to be the day for people doing very small tight Wordles. Except me, of course.

    Well dang! That is something along the lines of perfection, Elizabeth. Not a wasted word.



  10. Mary says:

    Truly amazing how TIGHTLY you worked these words into a brilliant poem.


  11. Victoria says:

    Another very economic use of the words without losing meaning.

    Very well penned, Elizabeth! I am impressed with your clarity and brevity. A strong image rises. Brava!!


  13. This little wonder was like a gauntlet thrown down for the rest of us… there! Economize on that!

    Seriously, Elizabeth, this was stunning, strong imagery. Brill! Found you at MMT’s comments section! Amy


  14. Mary says:

    Wow, that is one powerful poem, Elizabeth. The fury of nature is crystallized in this poem…and in this case with a ‘one-two punch.’


  15. “…revisited rain eroded”

    This alliteration jumped out at me and put the image completely in my mind. Excellent, Elizabeth.

    …It’s like a scene from Noah’s story after the flood… I loved this short, pensive piece… Smiles…

    I was away last week. The last eve of our stay we had stormy weather. Together with the highest incoming tide… the best that could be done by the life guards was to close the beach early.

    Thanks for your visit and link. Makes return visits easier. I like your image too – the crows not even wanting to visit…
