Oh... spooky and mysterious. I was picturing a serene image but the third line changed it all. :-)-HA
packs a wallop, MG ~
Yikes! Fantastic ending! :-)
That sound carries so much weight, too much. A poem that lingers with me.
Ah yes gunshots. Reminds me of our time in South Africa and Angola. Particularly the latter as the war was on. You get used to it although after our house came under fire it took me more than a year to get used to it again and to stop jumping out of my skin when a car backfired.
Oh yes.. when I lived in Arizona many years ago, I remember a gun being fired right outside my apartment... it definitely weighs you down... then it could be the gunshots in the news as well....
Had that happen a few times where we used to live, wrecks your sleep for sure! Well done.
wow..tough. Good capture, you said so much in a few words.
