Red Beach

via photobucket

the birds singing to the emptiness of her soul
red blooms like the bleeding of her heart
home of the cranes, repository of her dreams



posted for Hannah's Transforming Friday prompt at Real Toads: Red Beach, Panjin, China, a marvellous sea of colour every autumn. I have not even attempted to count syllables, or adhere to any form, just transcribed what came. But Hannah says we can do that!!!! Wikipedia says this area is home to the cranes along with hundreds of other bird species. Wow. Bucket list.

  6. My husband has always wanted to go to China. I've resisted, but for this sight I may concede some day. How beautiful. And once again the words just flow to and from you.
