    I love the picture, and the words! Everything ends with the written word in your world…

      It certainly does my friend, can’t get enough of it, it’s the drug that keeps on giving!

    Very quizzical….How’s about expanding on these thoughts? In, for example, second, third, and fourth stanzas? I somehow think you have more to say….?….

      I could, yet I feel like being ever so slightly enigmatic about it. Less is more, or probably not in this case…

      Thank you my friend, once again I treat you all to a bit of my own writing before inspiration runs away again!

    Strychnine is quite the vocabulary word! Such an interesting word choice for this poem… I agree with Shadowoperator — I wish you’d expand a little more and let me in on the thoughts going on in your brain!

      Perhaps another time, although when I penned it I did consider it finished and I am not usually in the habit of being so succinct.

    I agree with you – less is definitely more! Very nice Ste.

    I really enjoyed this one Ste J…evocative, mysterious, dreamy. I think that less is more in this case.

      I was pleasantly surprised when that phrase popped into my head and I promise to try and write more.

      Thank you my friend! I am so happy you like it, I’m not anywhere near your level of skill but it is good to mix it up from a book review and keep you guessing to what’s coming next.

          It’s less putting myself down and more of an observance on my skills so far but it is does encourage me to push myself relentlessly in all my writings and wandering around such blogs as I regularly visit certainly gives me much to help me become better (although this sentence is a long meandering one so doesn’t count). My mixing bowl is filling up as we speak.
