“LL” Challenge: Alluvium
I’ve just completed the SOLSC15 month-long challenge. It’s time to write more. Daily “Double LL” prompts will be given. They all can connect to nature.
Anyone who shares a poem in the comments or a link, will be eligible for a Poetry Book Prize Package. I am waiting to hear about one item before I announce the contents.
Today’s word: ALLUVIUM
Definition: from Latin, to wash against. Deposits of earth sand. Made by rivers and floods.
sifting the alluvium
with my toes
broken shards from a hidden past

This from my friend, Dr. Rick McGrath:
hinders my present efforts
to doubt tomorrow’s storms
wash away my troubled past
