Prompt–Thursday, August 11

Use an image you return to, whether it’s a favorite photo, painting, or a piece of visual art.

My childhood home has a magnolia tree in the front yard. It is an image I use very often in my poems and fiction.

Beetle-resistant pods
yield to 4-year-old nails
as they rip to enter
the seed’s center.
