echoes fall quiet

laugh in darkness
ghosts tango in moonlight
scrawled footprints on vaulted ceilings
shadows menace sunlight
upon walls like spidery webs
You’re at BrewNSpew Cafe, where friends meet
This site is dedicated to J. Kirk Richards of Sanford, Florida and to Sharon Asselin of San Francisco. The former saved my life a couple of times and the latter gave me poetry.
Influences are Emily Dickinson, James Wright, Basho, Daisaku Ikeda, and Li Po. My favorite ice cream is Chunky Monkey and I like staying in the van while others revel on long walks at the beach.
Please support your fellow bloggers
Here’s what is going on at the cafe. On Mondays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Cafe. A weekly feature is I share a word and/or image for your interpretation. I have included my own creation addressing the prompt.
Please join our talented community and challenge yourselves by contributing your own creation using the week by week featured word, image or both. There are no restrictions, except please and thank you for limiting a written post to 300 words or fewer.
