“Listen, are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?” ~ Mary Oliver
I especially liked "a picture falls out of a book/my fingers can't pick it up"--I could feel the heart breaking like it was mine. Very nice.
The short lines are airy, as is the interpretation of each new day. I agree with chiklegirl, the stanza about not being able to pick up the book stands out.
that is beautiful...
I also agree with chicklegirl and christine. The picture falling out of the book is a nice concrete image. Good work.
Besides the stanza with the dropped photo I like the following one, too:the sun rises and setsto the tune of a songi hear your voicea whisper in my earVery nice!
that last stanza is a killer.. so true... wonderfully done...
Strange things, thoughts. Some are powerful and remain, others DO wash away. But how do we decide which is which?A powerful poem. Excellent.
