Snowball's Chance

I Follow the Wind - by Judith Clay


By
a
thin thread
I hang on
chasing your wild wind,
risking all for a house of cards.


© 2013 Jennifer Wagner


A Fibonacci poem for Hedgewitch’s Weekend Mini-Challenge at IGWRT and for dVerse Poetics where Claudia has provided us with an opportunity to write to the wonderful work of Judith Clay.  I’m too late for the link so I’ll be linking to OpenLinkNight.
