This is lovely, I can see that smooth shiny river pebble.
Could you edit it and add it to the workshop, so it's saved in the workshop collection. Just scroll down to the bottom of your edit page and select the imagery workshop.

Now that's imagery. The color, the shapes.

That's pretty much always how I think when considering imagery - colors and shapes that give an emotional aspect to the words.

about the title. But is not the title of a poem the precursor to the imagery? Can one be divorced from the other?
You collect stones? So do I...LOL what's wrong with us?

I would like some opinions on this thing with imagery and title.
