The middle is a knot to be tightened or undone

The end is sad sigh of regret and loss

  1. Val, this is a perfect pairing of words with image. I love this, and I love that you thought of these words. How many people would not even see….this is the best kind of poetry.

    1. Thank you Danielle, I took that photo in Nova Scotia this past summer and everytime I looked at it I felt something final and certain. Something special happened to me when I went home this year and this photo and verse sums it up perfectly. It pleases me a great deal that you liked it. 🙂 hugs
