Arcadian valley

bright yellow stone peeking out of dusty green –
the fading thunder of hoofs –
remote laughter of the gods

I love references to gods!

Incidentally, I noticed your name on the list of PSH e-book free-for-all 2007 contributors and found I'd downloaded and enjoyed your words! It's time, again!

Leonard, you always have to be careful when you can hear the gods laughing - it means trouble! :D

This is so complex. I've been to arcadia and am trying to think of the yellow stone. It is fascinating and lovely.

you've really hit on the timelessness of laughter, the universality of it.
