I felt this fall into place: grammar and sentence and true word play. Country roads!
Delicious words!! xo
Again, you raised the bar for the rest of us.
Enjoyed the wordplay!
Terrific as always and, as always, a great start for my day! Have a beautiful one!
There is a strong double-meaning in the sentence here and the barbed wire of that sticky-blacktopped road. Really well done, MZ. k.
Such a brilliant piece :DBeautifully executed :DLots of love,Sanaa
At last! You reveal the secret of your success as a poet...:-)
Love the imagery and play on words.
Deft and heart-tugging at once.
You are just awfully good at this. No one but you writes quite this way, though we would all like to.
I love what you did with your line breaks, turning the road into a sweaty shirt. And then the way you offered multiple meanings in words like "ditches" (abandonments/breakups), "weeds" (we'[woul]ds), "fence" (fighting), "posts" (writing), and then the obvious one, "sentence."
Honkytonk (well, Emmylou) Whitman out in a Kansas there is no Oz for and all of it reveals the heart and heat of a place in a life. In words more precious than promises. Sigh and amen.
Nice, fun, M.Z. We're there some more for me?I found these, one (please) was soggy: "If you go, please come back."..
Fantastically clever, and I totally relate.
"This heart cannot leave." Written in barbed wire. I so get that.
aw! this is cutting edgethanks for dropping in to read minemuch love...
Just some amazing and wonderful simplicity. It really speaks to me about how a place really can be part of your soul.
so obviously I'm going backwards but what else is new. this, however... nothing backwards about it at all. ~
