Folded letters said...

Silver rising through glass, stalked
blooms arms length, like febrile kisses 
to a blanched left hand, she squeeezed
to white

I have to hurry if I'm catching the bus this time. I'll be on the road for more than a week, leaving Friday. If I can't make it, I'll be with you in spirit!

I am reading that first image as a daffodil - is that alright?!
If it is, here is my daffy poem, written as March departs..

I have number one as an artistic representation of the alimentary canal, number three is an ancient Szechuam manuscript and number four is the surface of Jupiter's moon Io, seen at a distance of 200,000 miles.
No idea about number two.

swiss said...

they can be whatever you want them to be!

Dominic Rivron said...

Just to let you know I've scheduled my contribution to appear on Sunday.

Must rush!

Dominic Rivron said...

Hi Swiss - my first visit to your blog, although I have heard a lot about it from Dominic - now I have to choose which picture - but something will materialise for Monday - I promise.
