Even with your flaws,
darkness cratering the light,
through you runs a path.

  1. What a beauty!
    That would be perfect art on the wall…

    ps. I did get your comment on my blog.
    I’d like to know what happened that you think it didn’t show up because I’ve complained about that issue but they didn’t find anything. Pls send me an email if you have time, thanks!

  2. Wow.. both the prompts in one.. beautifully done..

  3. Excellent words of compliments to someone.Beautiful.

  4. Wonderful deep shadows in this narrow street!

  5. Oh wow….very, VERY dramatic!!

  6. and we can never know where it will lead us…..beautiful photo.

  7. That’s an awesome photo. Sort of a change of pace from the church steeples and colorful Mexican plazas. Eerie, haunting, wreaks of espionage! The words are heavy duty and meaningful. Some of your best with this one.

  11. Very good photography.


  12. Oooo, now this one is mysterious! I’m always impressed with shadows taken in low light. Very nice!

  14. “the light through you runs a path!”

    Nice imagery!

  15. Wonderful photo… love the light and shadows…

  16. I particularly like the last line.

  17. Hi MMT 🙂 ~~ I’m like your poem’s subject, I really don’t like to be easily read. Yet when people see my light and get to know me they read my like a book.

    Thank you for you nice usage of the prompt. I enjoyed reading this and finding meaning in your verse. Whether I matched your poet’s ideas remains for you to know.
    BTW, Mrs. Jim doens’t read my poems. One daughter does and I’ll catch the Dickens about it. I did make a change and offered the original 1st person version and also one changed into 3rd person.

    I am asking reader choice but soooooo many visited while I was gone this afternoon who probably won’t come back to vote or critique. Only three left a comment although twelve visited.

    Even with your flaws,
    darkness cratering the light,
    through you runs a path
