Pastoral

I was going to gather eggs in the pretty basket
I’d found hanging on the gate near the coop.
Playing farmer in the dell –
Hiking boots, skirt, my hair pulled back
to show my naked face.
But the eggs … smeared
with shit … blood.


dVerse quadrille Monday – on a Tuesday as always because my Monday writing time is before dVerse wakes up to Monday. So it’s a good think I am mainly here for the practice.

  1. You packed so much in this quadrille, it’s amazing. I admit, I laughed at the shit and blood line because I was just not expecting it lol. This is excellent writing and I enjoyed the imagery you created here.
