Thanks to Tess Kincaid, poet extrordinaire, for photo prompt up at Magpie Tales, and poet Sam Peralta, for cogent and fascinating essay on Free Verse up today at One Stop Poetry.
I'm posting the poem below, written today, for the prompt, and below that appears my poem "The Wrack of Shells," my homage to Sylvia Plath written earlier this year, originally put up at She Writes. Enjoy! Comment on me and I'll come to you...xJenne'

#2 -- As noted, posted earlier around Plath would-have been birthday; much, much is to be learned about the craft of poetry in reading Sylvia Plath.
Of kaleidoscope shells
Probing fractured Venus with a stick
Under a tent of taunting gulls.
That chucks in backtrack of the wave;
Though the mind like an oyster labors on and on,
A grain of sand is all we have.”
