What do roasted walnuts have in common with poetry?

Walnuts have fine taste.  Roasting them lightly expands that taste.  Think of editing as the equivalent of roasted.  Editing makes the small larger just as roasting expands the taste of a handful of nuts. 

The release of oil.  Each word releasing its essence.

Less is needed.  Less is more.

  1. The crunch of the gravel beneath her feet
    reminded her of the holidays
    those times she gathered with the other townspeople
    in the days before the mysterious note disrupted them
