Post! So over at One Stop Poetry they have a Sunday challenge photo (55 word poem or flash fiction) and  today I wrote my first poem of twenty-eleven. Thanks to KJ Halliday for the photo. Pop over to One Stop Poetry to have a look at the photo and check to see if I have conveyed it well in words or not.


Float on a fire sea
Silver white waters
Where there’s a walking me
Blood red cliffs hover
Hiding what lies

Within it I am discovered
So many strange faces
Erased by the forgotten
Names lost to other spaces

In your eyes you see me flee
My dear human brother
Locked inside your secret places

****** End of Post

Like the way you make the poem feel personal by introducing "Where there’s a walking me." And forgotten names allows for the reader to personalize too. Fine poem, Paige. Thanks for taking the challenge!

"Float on a fire sea
Silver white waters
Where there's a walking me"

That certainly captured the picture.
