Solitude

 Trifextra Week Fifty One:   choose one of the pictures below and give us a 33-word response to it.



far above the roil and boil
hue and cry
in quiet repose
imagine the world an ordered place
of sootless air
and whispered breeze
and uncluttered horizons
with room to spread one's wings



this is the picture I chose
