Squash Bug



of darkness

bar the pathway ahead,


anger and hatred

tangling ankles in tendrils of flame,

binding feet into immobility.

Hold tight.

Breathe deep.

Specters woven of inconstant sorrow

will not remain triumphant.


yet lies beyond.

This post is for Musin’ with Susan’s Macro Moments challenge. This week’s photo was taken in the meadow at the beginning of September using my Canon EOS 1100D, 18-55mm lens: f/7.1, 1/100, ISO-100.

    1. Thank you. I always try to remember, even in the darkest times, that things will get better. Focussing on the negativity simply makes it stronger. I like to reflect this in my poems when I can. 🙂
