crescendos throughout the day,
reaching a climax at dusk.
In woody eucalyptus
of a sprig of rosemary,
the town has remembered me.
In its low, glowering skies,
swarms of midges and horseflies,
my wild memories linger.
Kim M. Russell, 2017

The Prompt Muse has come bearing flowers, bugs, herbs… and three phrases, because in Magaly’s challenges *and in stories* the best things come in threes.
Magaly’s prompt is simple: we should write a three-stanza poem using one of the images she has shared plus the phrase that precedes it. We should feel free to share the photos with our poems but, if we choose not to share our chosen image, we should add a note to say which photo inspired our poem.
