throwing salt - to ward off treachery and lies? That's how I read the poem - You always such powerful stuff with so little words - and I admire that.
What a voice you have given to a latter day Lot's wife... I can relate.
Of course. Lot's wife. I have always sympathized with her
I've actually turned to see what was left burning as we had to evacuate town once for fear that a tanker was going to blow. I didn't turn to salt with my babies in the car with me, and we did get to return home. Nice rhyming here, almost like a nursery rhyme we should teach our kids.
Theology and philosophy should always be this pithy.
A succinct zinger, at which you excel.
MZ--I love how the title seques into the poem. I'd say this was short and sweet, but your pieces are never syrupy sweet.
A perfect perspective-
This poem's got a lot going for it . Very clever - burn, baby, burn.
I love it when you mix the biblical and the...not.
Better proverbs than lamentations.
Lot's wife, she turned to salt; yeah but that was longgggg agoMuch love...
Simple and to the point. So that's how she felt, I always wondered.
