55 Flash: My Quicksilver Life

Living on Quicksilver edges:

Unicorn spikes of twisted zin
pierce steamy meringue skies

A mossy jade cove
grips a quartz goblet bay

Tangible alabaster rods slide
into evanescent magnesium mists

Slate-shaded hills back
glistening serpentine grasses

Black cows munch clover
beside waxen white beehives

Steely spider-net trees
frame charcoal expanses

Lichen-laden branches
drip dark mink.


-This is a poem in 55 words exactly, a challenge hosted by fellow blogger, Mr. Knowitall, HERE

  12. Ah, what a feast for the senses this is!

    The dripping mink is especially neat, as is the quartz goblet bay -- well, so many words in this delight.

    Thank you!
