Tanka for Jill Carroll

hourglass of desert sand
trickling, trickling
her captors know not
of her love for them

Heartfelt. Nice. We can only pray.

thanks for the kind words. I agree with the call to prayer. It is all we can do.

Rebecca said...

I love the imagery, and the economic/double intendre use of words: hourglass of desert sand

catnapping and rebecca: thanks for stopping in! reading this again makes my heart quiver when i wonder of her fate. my heart goes out to her and her family.

thanks for your kind words.
