Parsing Translucence

Parsing Translucence

She takes care to walk around
The webs that veil
The field, spiders
Posing as the ghosts
Of stone, path
For the unwary.


This is a sort of imagist poem posted for Kerry O’Connor’s prompt in honor of William Carlos Williams on With Real Toads.  I found this one super difficult – this is actually my very first version.  I did a zillion others, but my husband told me this was the best, so back to it.   (I’ve used a title that was a line in one of the other versions, and which he does not think fits.  Too bad!) 

The pictures were all taken the other morning by me on my iPhone.  Quite amazing.  (All rights reserved.)
