You must destroy your remaining photographs of me - this would help dispell the obsession.

Good one.

Lilibeth said...

Well done. I know why we turn pictures around and even hide them in an old brown box in the attic.

Maybe some photos should not be displayed. Powerful imagery.

what a great haiku about the tumult of memories!

Stan Ski said...

This can be taken in different ways - is it a photo of a missed loved-one...or a despised enemy...?

Sir Silley, I keep your photographs to scare the bad guys. One look at those, they are at their wits end.

BTW, you still alive in the crevasse? Do let me know when you die..

Gautami your writing 'pieces' are marvellous. "photographic peace" that has been shattered! I enjoyed this small poem.
