Rust Image

By Diane Webster

The caterpillar of rust predicts

a harsher winter than average

as it crawls in tiny steps,

leaves behind fuzzy outline

of path across metal

like a pink chalk flower

drawn on sidewalk

during a July afternoon.


Diane Webster’s goal is to remain open to poetry ideas in everyday life, nature or an overheard phrase. Diane enjoys the challenge of transforming images into words. Her work has appeared in “El Portal,” “North Dakota Quarterly,” “Eunoia Review” and other literary magazines.
