Thanks to Carol V. at Beyond LiteracyLink for hosting Poetry Friday this week.
I’ve been traveling the southwest for close to 2 weeks. We’ve seen friends and played in Moab and Bryce.
I brought along my glass orb to play with along the way. Turns out l, people are curious and had fun with it too.
I stand at the rim

BTW, it’s time to apply to be a CYBILS judge. Deadline is Sunday, September 9.
Wow! That orb really lets you see a place with a different perspective–like poetry does.
It can be scary standing at the rim (especially through the eyes of your orb!) … but oh so exciting at the same time!
What a great photograph, Jone. The orb provides an interesting design in a small space. I can imagine you standing on the rim listening to the call of nature.
Love the slant rhyme of song and dawn. Lovely photo!
Having a glass orb makes mystery from your beautiful pictures, Jone. I’ve loved seeing & hearing ravens in my travels & you’ve brought them back for us. Happy Travelin’!
That orb makes an outstanding view a bit mysterious and spiritual.
I’m glad you thought to take that orb along, Jone – it shifts perspective in such an interesting way. Lovely poem!
Jone, I love these places where you’ve been standing on the rim, orb in hand… beautiful! Happy exploring and poem-making! xo
