Hurried rush and then
Jackrabbit frozen in place
Stillness here means life
Poem and photography (c) 2017 Michelle M. Welch
Author’s note: As the long agent/editor search for my last novel nears the end of my submission list, with no takers so far, and the worst case scenario I described when I started posting the related flash fiction for the project becomes more likely, I find that I and my brief bursts of flash writing feel more and more stale. I decided to give myself a little refresher by getting different creative parts of my brain going. Hopefully I’ll be able to add more poems and photos to the posting rotation. This and the next few were taken/written at the Riparian Preserve in Gilbert, AZ.
