Another Step with the Flame - by Vera

She held it aloft,
the sparking torch,
tripping forward
through schist
with moments of trepidation
and obvious frustration
and love
and persistence
and humorous castration.

Another edit done.
A magnificent feat.

And now
for some dark chocolate
and gardening.


  1. Small explanation might be in order! I just finished a major edit on my next novel. Vera is the main character, who uses old postcards to express herself. I used real postcards in the novel, and this photo is one of them. I'm heading out to plant the tomatoes - better (very) late than never!

  2. I am thrilled that Vera appreciates Greek tacky postcards!
