the wind too is kind

in my pocket I want to carry your blink
just prior to your staring unblinking at me
I want to remember forever
those eyes smiling at me
that blink I would take it out on that occasion
when I am sitting with my solitude
when the wind too is kind enough to blow around me

The words were as light as a breath - the images as strong as an opening eye..Jae

In just the idea of keeping such a fleeting aspect of a lover's mannerism and having it there to take it out later is very romantic.

I love how you paint with words.

How lovely!

Like those photos where our eyes are closed, we wish we could make them open forever.

Gautami, I am so fond of the idea of putting something oblique in one's pocket. I am currently in the jacket pocket of a friend in India! He promised to keep me where there was a good view.

This was lovely. Thanks, and here's mine for 3WW:

What a lovely picture this evokes

I love this - the blink suggesting life and that eyes will reopen. Unblinking suggesting death and loss. So beautiful and heartbreaking. I am going to hold onto the idea of keeping the blinks of those I cherish.

Curious and charming images! I like the idea of carrying around a blink, and the kindness of the wind.
