Confetti of time

photographer Rosie Hardy



a phantom of myself
blowing away cobwebs of time
I ponder in  midst of confetti
scattered by unknown forces
I'm not getting any younger

I am lost in 14-inch TV

I need some air...such a tiny space. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.

You capture a moment preceding conscious change—questioning of growing older and being in time.

Just love this line...I ponder in midst of confetti
scattered by unknown forces

How many words we leave like scattered confetti upon the unknown forces/faces.

Gautami,

As I have said so many times, it is pleasure to read you. I liked Walk the Past and this one the best out of pending ones I read.

Take care
