Stocking stuffer




The props were made of black and bleak
not a single caravan came by
but I turned both the eye and cheek
and found some loopy plump cacti
thorny pretty and far from meek


growing thick in a crick of rocks
and that too felt as beautiful
as stuffed stockings of windsocks
waving off the stereopull
of incensed roads and office blocks.

  3. Amazing what you can weave with words, Nila, thoughts that tickle our imaginations and make beautiful what some perceive as plain.

    Wishing you a lovely Merry Christmas and Best wishes for 2015!

Thank you for stopping by! If you are here from the A-Z, please leave me your link. A clicky link would be super, but just your url pasted in will do fine too. Just please, please, don't leave me to figure things out from a Google profile! :-)
