well grasshopper,
you’ve got yourself,
in a bit of a pickle.

holding on for life,
on the transparent surface,

65 was past your grip strength.

Did you survive,
this blustery trip,
this windy ride and tumbling lift?

now we know,
the story’s close.

The truck we passed,
with risqué stickers,
just turned on its windshield wipers.

This year our themes are a bit more open to different perspectives which should yield a more interesting curation of photos! I’m really looking forward to what everyone brings to the submission table (and what might hit the cutting floor).
