It's raining here off and on so I'm going through old writes. This one is about a photograph I found and I'd torn off the part of a person I'd chosen to condition. Although we play games like this to forget the past... we always remember the visual.


Mirror images and light
Refractions of a minute
Dated portrait inset
Pains are merely hinted
Fine line of a feather
Brushed with artists hand
Justifying moments
Hourglass in sands
Shadows in a mirror
Etched in time's array
Severed image photo
Seclusion in the grays
This woman like a rose in time
Rosy cheeks a glow
Breathing in this moment
Another breath she glows
Aloof and charming angel
Rose of Cardinal red
Visions of a dreamer
Love is tender fed
Careful is this image
Always looking back
Intelligence of wisdom
With mirror imaged tact.

I believe every love teaches us something. And if it were not for the pitfalls and heartaches, we would have no idea of the true value of our TRUE LOVE. You have such a tender heart. Thank you for sharing the thoughts of it. :)

~~Susan~~i feel a soft smile and a tender tear in this poem..maybe it's mine~~

You can chalk this one up, I don't usually comment on two different poems by the same person a day. Seems to me that is just stretching things a bit. Of course, that is just MY opinion. As you invariably do, you take the words and shape and mold and construct them into works of art, this one is no different in that respect. Well done.

Great poem to choose and place in our garden.
