From Therese B. at RWP -- If my memory serves me correctly, this is the only prompted poem which interprets the photo's lowest, darkest region. I like how you interpret that region as waist-high water -- the opposite of fire, but not (in this poem or photo) any kind of remedy for fire. Instead, both water and fire are dangers.
There are so many layers in so few words here. Enjoyed it very much. Thank you, Erin!
There you go again...mind-blowing!
Wonderful--and so true.
Therese-Thank you for noticing. Leave it to me to find the dark side!Julie-Thank you very much. I started out with a lot more words, but kept paring them down...Lydia-I just love you!ds-Thanks-I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds some truth in this.
