Beyond This Keep ~ #writephoto


Beyond This Keep

Lofty as they were, our aspirations held
little common ground. The ruins we share
bring me no comfort, and the walls I build

offer even less. There is more than gray
beyond this horizon, and I will find it,
leaving this darkness behind.

This is my response to Thursday Photo Prompt: Keep #writephoto
at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo, with her photo.

Perhaps this even meets the prompt from Frank Hubeny at dVerse Poets Pub for Soliloquy.

In Its Own Light ~ #writephoto

In Its Own Light

A tree would grace this room,
with scattered memories, moments,
as if ornaments in our lives.

Laced with light, a strand of time
across its branches, this past year
and all that it offered, all it has taken.

A balance achieved, yet where
is the balance in taking a life,
to see it wither before our eyes?

Better to see it in its own light,
that we might know it as it is,
as it will be each passing year.

This is my response to Thursday Photo Prompt: Light #writephoto
at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo, with her photo.

Castle of Illusion ~ blackout poem

Castle of Illusion

Land and sites engaged the illusion,
made perfect the wholeness, hiding
hollowness. Empty windows watched,
the Ego isolated within, disturbed.
Cairn of ancestors, bitter wind,
vacant feel part of its landscape,
our own psyche apart from it.

This blackout poem is based on a post, Hunting the Unicorn: Shells and Fruits,
written by Sue Vincent and posted at The Silent Eye.  I encourage you to read it.
The image is an edited/layered version of  two of Sue’s photos.
~~ Thank you to Sue for her inspiration and for graciously accepting my offering. ~~
