Wonderful verse, Tim, with an ominous tone.
It is ominous for the whispy apparitions in the clouds. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
I like the unexpect third line,
You’re welcome, Tim.
A delightful’ ku and photo!
Welcome Timothy !
ooooh ooooh so good Tim! 💙
Ghosts’ ephemeral dance above the line. Maybe they’re better off not knowing what lies below! 😉 Beautiful image and Timku!
Thanks, Marina. Lots of action in the sky.
Some of them escaped to Greece!
To take refuse and give you their blessings.
So nice of them!
Beautifully captured in both words and image…:)
Lovely words and photo, Timothy.
Beautifully done… But why peril? Why can it not be something else? Of course, wanting it to be something else does not mean that’s the way it’s meant to be 😉
Peril has two syllables. I could have used “Flushed away by wind” (iffy on the syllable count) or “Annihilation” or “Total destruction” (but then I couldn’t include wind) or “Breaking with the wind”, etc. But “Peril waits on wind” seemed more poetic. Thanks, Dale.
I thought we determined that you can play with your syllables as you see fit?
I think it does sound perfectly poetic!
Still need to try and keep those syllabic verses in line and make sure they are down for the count.
You are the artist and auteur. I respect that 🙂
I appreciate that. I often feel like Rodney Dangerfield when it come to respect.
You don’t get none? Stop… We, your faithful following, all do!
I wish I was as funny and witty as old Dangerfield was. He could rattle off the one-liners.
Ah well… he got on my nerves after a while! He was really good at one-liners, this is true.
I didn’t care much for his movies, but he was a stitch on Johnny Carson, where I saw most of his routines.
That’s it. I couldn’t stand his movies. Small doses is what I liked 🙂
A lot of comedians are like that. I could only take people like Robin Williams and Jim Cary in small doses. Some of my favorite comedians were Flip Wilson, George Carlin, Cheech & Chong (I didn’t like C&C’s movies), George Burns, Tim Conway, etc. I don’t like most of the contemporary comedians. Iliza Shlesinger is clever and funny, and Brad Williams is a stitch.
This is true. I loved Robin Williams as an actor, I never saw a whole set of his stand-up act, so I don’t know. Jim Carrey – depends on the movies because he can also take up too much space! George Carlin was brilliant. George Burns, Tim Conway – classics! I don’t know Iliza Shlesinger or Brad Williams…
You should look up Iliza and Brad.
What a gorgeous, filamentous sky! They are ghost-like.
Yes, a perilous journey across the sky but battles through!
Indeed. Thanks, Geoff.
Stunning image, Tim!
Fantastic poetry, and photo, Tim.
Thanks, Brian. The perils of poetry persist.
You go, TimKu!!!! xo
