stone with moss and lichens


Get into this train for a great ride....





hiding there-

yet aura makes known
of your presence


******

musty old letter
bringing in tears-
tears me apart


******

others' memories
are just as private
as our thoughts


******


All these and a few more were inspired by J. Andrew Lockhart.

All good, but first the best.

I want to get on
the poetry train!

We're on it already!

Julia Smith said...

I like the third one's realization of the inner lives of others.

floreta said...

i like this set..
i can relate to the letters bringing you back, flooded with tears.. and then the reminder that other's memories/thoughts are private and something you cannot control.. ultimately we have to let go of those letters!

Good work, Gautami!

I like the play on words in the second with "tears"! But all three are nice crisp images!

Love the tears and tears play!

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

as far as the last one- yes, you're right-- doesn't mean I won't think about it, though. :)
I like them all and thank you.

That's wonderful. What shadows can't reveal, the aura does well.
