There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
A bit bleak, but all start and end the same
Yes, this one is bleak. Not biographical though. :o)
short and well said
Thank you Kathe.
Very concise and spooky.
This is brief, but deep. Well done, Mary.
I feel those words. Bravo.

Thank you B.
The circle of life can seem rough around the edges sometimes....great write Mary! :-)
I loved this image but afraid I couldn't do it justice (like you), I never tried.
Thanks Yvonne. I'll go check out what you did write about. :o)

Indeed. Thanks Bjorn.

Thanks Brian. I actually meant the second...the way a woman can lose her identity when she gains the role of mother, but I like that it's ambiguous.
It was like a haiku and I enjoyed your clever take on this. Bravo Mary!
And not at all biographical.
I also thought it was sad she was nameless...I almost posted this photo in black and white...I'm glad you did...
Thank you Tess. That was what struck me the most.
Thank you Michael. Sorry I didn't see your comment sooner. It was caught in my filter for some reason.
