#vss365 #prompt #crepuscular

The meteor hurled itself

Against Europe’s crown jewel hub

Leaving all aflame in crepuscular haze

For days on end.

Once again, Nature proves itself a force

Greater than the constructs of mankind.


Of course, we shall build again.

It is the Spirit that prevails.

#vss365 #prompt #rivulet

Crisp air sails puffy clouds high aloft over the Rocky Mountains speckled gold and green with aspens and pines, the snowmelt having long ago devolved from waterfall to river to rivulet.

Here I sit alone

Fretting an embossed dragon

On Black tapestry.

Fretting an embossed dragon

Into stark black emotions

Wondering if you’re alive.
