There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
And there it is, forever. :-)
For better or worse. :o)
The fossils of memory--how eloquent they are. Lovely, Mary.
THank you Joy. :o)
For time immemorial fossils are the witness of past and present.
Thanks for the comment Vandana.
.....from where it springs forth at unexpected moments...
Stuck there forever in a day
Oh yes, the priceless images stored in the backs of our minds ... when we are quiet and contemplative, we can call them forth ~ a lovely experience to be sure.
It is Helen, thanks. x
It is, you are so right. This image was my most favorite of them all, and what I used too.
Thanks Karen. And I liked yours as well.
Well, Mary, if one is to have things pressed into the back of ones mind forever then I am glad that this one is pretty (a beauty). Nicely written, it reads nice. A little scary in thought though.....
Thanks Jim. Lol, we can't win, both memory and forgetting are both a little scary. I'm not sure which is worse!
Such a lovely portrait. The tone and structure compliment the image so well...
Thank you Magaly!
That last line seals the deal. Excellent!
Thanks Kerry :o)
I love it...both that petite, delicate fossil and your accompanying words.
Thank you Bodhirose. Do you have a poetry blog so I can return the favor and read something of yours?
Oh, very cool!
Thanks MZ, and thanks for those lovely pics!
finely done, Mary ~
Thank you very much.
I adore the metaphor. Alzheimer's steals such treasures…
Thnak you Margaret. Alzheier's is the worst. Absolutely.
Thank you Amrit!
