  3. I enjoyed each of these, Gay; but the one with the swans stood out in my mind, as I have an affinity for swans. Love the photo and the reflection (in tabletop & words).

    1. I think "show jitters" is not widely said - it's that "butterflies in the tummy" thing one gets before going onstage. I think we all get giddy as spring approaches ;-)

  15. I love the unexpected here. The way the words are compressed together. Nice shots too!

  17. Lovely photos. I'm partial to the first as I'm drawn to amythests. Your use of American sentences is appropriate here and your choices are right on.

  19. Amethyst....frozen in space and shot through a star...just gorgeous!

  20. All three work beautifully; my favorite is the first one for image, the second one for the verse--hey, I always do well with American sentences; didn't think of it--so I just thought of Twitter poetry, & launched everything from there.

  21. I enjoyed what you created using American sentences..I have to try that form again.

  22. American sentences is a new one to me (showing my ignorance of poetic form here, that's why I have so much to learn from you all!). Stunning photos and such rich 'sentences' too.

  23. Lovely visuals Gay - enjoyed the last one most.

  24. A great take on the prompt ---often wish I could paint glass and light as if it were real...nature's way ;)

  25. Love your description of the amethyst...one of my favorite stones. Your lines and photos complement beautifully...thanks for sharing, Gay.

  26. Though I loved all of these, the 1st one grabbed me because of the astro-physical elements. Shoot anything through a star, and you'll have me eating from the palm of your hands!

  27. lovely...it's hard to pick a favorite...but I do feel a bit for the silver swan.

    1. Thank you - he sails on the dark side - tarnish takes to him while those crystal ballerinas soak up the sun(spot)light. :-)
      (He is a particular favorite of mine)

  28. Show jitters indeed--Show me some Spring! Ha. It is 1 degree where I live--I'm i the City so a bit warmer, but very frigid. Thanks, these are all charming and bring a smile and moment of reflection. k. (My micropoetry is okay but if you do go to my place there's a poem about NYC you may like better since you are interested in the city. Don't feel obligated! Take care, Gay.) K.
