undefined paths

a precise image
caught in the flash of memories
there isn't anything gradual
a breathe of a moment
lights up in an instant
solemn yet effervescent
blindly I follow its chaotic path
a photograph, few words-
embroidered tapestry

knowing not what,
I abandon it,
giving in to sheer glee of that.
a poignant or pleasurable moment;
you decide.

Well written. I've not played 3ww for some time, until a few days ago. I remember your writing from when I was active. I'm going to try to be more regular on 3ww now. :-)

What a great subject to highlight, and you did it so beautifully. Nice job.

Linda Jacobs said...

It's sad to let go of the past but pleasurable, too, because it's not the present. It's done and gone, usually, thank god!

Jay Thurston said...

Nice one! Photographs can bring back such a mixture of feelings.

Oh, it's those "precise" images that are so breathtaking, eh? Well done.

Okay, first reading I thought it was aboot a photograph,
second time I realize it is a memory that pops in your head out of the blue..
third reading, it appears that you are trying to make the connections and understand where and why 'it' appeared... but you give up because you'd need to go over everything that you saw and read throughout the entire day.
Am I warm?

Could accompany so many images or artworks.
