    Wonderful. Did I comment on this already? I thought I had... Great poem. the night club of my mind - love that. I love when a writer can really delve into imagery and come up with something totally unexpected. (Report) Reply

    ....the poem describing
    a sentient rock, a hermit
    who sealed up...

    you can call me uneducated, or say i have a small vocabulary; just don't call me late for supper. i had to look up sentient, and i found this:

    sen·tient
    'senCH(e) ?nt/
    adjective
    adjective: sentient

    1.
    able to perceive or feel things.
    she had been instructed from birth in the equality of all sentient life forms
    synonyms: (capable of) feeling, living, live; More
    conscious, aware, responsive, reactive
    any sentient creature should have the good sense to avoid something so dangerous

    WELL, I SUPPOSE if one is going to write about a sentient rock, one is better off doing it in a poem than in prose.

    this sounds like some sort of dream (or daydream) sequence. interesting. i WAS looking forward to more about nancy and her sister and the poet, but a reader can't have EVERYTHING. thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply

    An absolute gem. How you got from lying in the bed with the sisters to a food slot is great. Hysterical! (Report) Reply

    I love this little poem, and what I love best is the title. I can feel the sunlight falling on the bare legs- yes, that's easy- but also falling through rock to the hermit in his hiding place, his safe house. Everyone has their place that is quiet for once, and Dear Villagers, thank you for the food. (Report) Reply
