No Red Shirt Missions | Inspired by Mara Eastern 248/365

Inspired by Mara Eastern’s photograph: Shoe Selfie

“No ‘Red-Shirt’ Missions”

Beam me up, Scotty!
Boots are thick, but jacket’s light…
Snowfall and thin air!

Altered slightly from the first version, which I put in a comment at Mara’s site.  Her photographs provide such marvelous impromptu poetry prompts. Thank you!

    1. I am grateful that you are not finding my little verses annoying, Mara. (Yet?) Writing them is quite stimulating.

      Your photos are for the most part pictures (for me) of somewhere and/or something, not generic snapshots. They connect.

      1. I can’t think of a greater compliment than to have my photos set to poetry. And brilliant poetry, on top of it. So, no way, I’m not bored with your verses! It’s curious that you find something personal in my photos – they are surely personal for me, as it’s my everyday life – but I didn’t think someone else would relate to them too 🙂
