"Firmament," by Michele Harvey:  http://micheleharvey.com/%28medium%29_available.html#2

As we assemble the new issue of tinywords, 15.2, we hope you’ll look up and be inspired by Michele L. Harvey’s airy vision of summer, “Firmament.” The photographic image of Michele’s painting appears here with the artist’s kind permission. It’s nothing but blue skies, green pastures and quite a display of clouds. Just the stuff to bring out a poem or two.

Add your best efforts in the comment box below. We’ll include the stand-out poem or poems in the up-coming issue of tinywords 15.2 that will go online in early September.

    Wonderful poems by both Claudette and Joanna.

    Joanna, a question:
    Did you make your poem a separate post as well as a reply to Claudette's poem?
    I think your poem is worth being seen by more people.

    warm regards,
