Arcturus



Thanks to Joseph Harker of Naming Constellations for this week's prompt, talisman.


Arcturus

thoughts dart
senseless
‘neath foamy krill
lidded whys
trawl
unwitnessed
neither heads nor tails

I am a red star
fading
take my years
I am jasper
in your palm

Hi Gabrielle, I missed this until tonight. It is wonderfully written in the first tense. I like it a lot!

I have both last weeks and this weeks up, you will have to scroll down a bit for 'talisman.'
I'd like you to read it, it is sort of funny.

I am sorry about your family situation and will be praying for you all. God does hear our prayers.
