For Quickly’s QKJ#1

Miz Quickly’s January prompt #1

 

 

River of January, TN

The sky is one cloud, an ocean. The road is pewter,
a river. The driveway has a line of burnt umber bald cypress trees
beside it, young and bare, and it’s a limestone-bottomed creek.
It’s taken years to reach this intersection of place and date:
there should be more to log than longitude, latitude,
time, the universal mist, and one scrawny squirrel. New Years Day.

  1. This is a fascinating snippet of careful observations and notations – much like a map or log – and it paints a very interesting scene in my mind, one that speaks beyond casual descriptions. I really like the “pewter” road – a river. Great word choices 🙂
