Images and memories hold time still


Color, light, and shadow
Portray joy, hurt, and wonder
Ordinary events transformed
Captured in a millisecond
Into permanent synapses
Forever etched in tracings
Constrained by befores and afters
Defined and delineated by the artist
Behind the camera
Who sees what others only wish
To hold time still if for a second
To resurface later in old age
Landscapes, close-ups, flowers
Lightning, snow, and wrinkles
Seared by primary colors
Onto a four by six white card
Carried in purses and lockets
Wallets, albums, and memories
Words cannot do justice
To what the eyes see
And the mind remembers
Adds, subtracts, and abstracts
To remove reality from time
Captures only what is mine

We all see things differently. One telling a story and passing it on it ends up differently then when it started, ever play that game? BEautiful write and pictures last forever and so does our mind. **********

Words cannot do justice
To what the eyes see
And the mind remembers......

Words of wonder and truth you pen this day. Well Done, Deborah

very classically pretty: both in written and visual styling [reminds me a wee of van gogh, the image]
