By Pond’s Edge

You have always been content to let the minnows dazzle you with their bright glinting.  How myopic. Where you see fish, I see stars drifting across the deep inverted basin of the sky.


This post was made in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekend Trifextra prompt:

This weekend we’re asking you to add thirty of your own words to the following three words for a total of thirty-three: myopic, dazzle, basin.
