Sumptuous imagery.. Reply 4joy says: July 8, 2013 at 7:54 am I saw a ‘good’ wife climbing up to the funeral pyre of her mate….sacrifice indeed…. Reply readinpleasure says: July 8, 2013 at 11:12 am this is powerful and haunting Reply Maggie Grace says: July 8, 2013 at 11:42 am This can be interpreted more than one way which I like. The two ways that come to mind…both vivid and emotional.

Images of the Inca bringing their sacrifices to please their gods. Reply Cathy Tenzo says: July 8, 2013 at 8:04 pm As others have said it can be read so many ways. My first thought was a writer burning a manuscript. Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: July 9, 2013 at 3:16 am Now, I LIKE that interpretation, although I am NOT about to burn any manuscripts! 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
