Time Was…for dVerse

A  spear point under an oak,

shark teeth in the roiling beach sand;

shooting stars spied from my porch cot,

fossil trilobites in my hand.

–Lightning bolts found underfoot

and pot shards after a rain.

The unknown beckons

while my muse reckons

 the irregular fringe of time.


About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

    I so enjoyed reading this, several times. I like the images and I like how you painted the moon through the shadows and reflections she makes.


  5. Stunning both in words and image 😀


  6. I feel like I’m excavating the traces, like I’m an archaeologist
