Lovely, Lorna. The color imagery is wonderful.I like the idea of the mouse, which tends to have negative associations, picking up a "fresh scent". Nice play on words.
Hmm. Interesting to think of the mouse's way as "pilgrim's pathway" in a "quilted dawn."
You conjure up the whole, magickal image.
Love the "hushed pilgrim pathway".
I like how you evoked the sense of smell in this one...and your use of color.
we all must make our journeys eh?even the mouse...wonderful little short lorna...
