reflections


your lens has perfectly captured the seagulls-
one that is feeding from my hands,
I want to fly away with him 
from this cruel world
I need a cloak to hide

excaping from that prison was a stroke of luck
but I have no cash by goods to survive
no longer can I skirt that-
one that has become an issue with the world
the clouds hide the sun

I wish for venus to rise from the ocean-
I promise I will hold her as my beloved

The photo is so amazing. You have captured the voice of the narrator well. I especially love the closing lines, which lifts the reader out of the circumstance and brings hope.

The last line - very intriguing... ~ to escape!

I see the power of those wings...

I like that little sideways step from line 2 to line 3. And the intensity of the wishful lines (3-5 and the final couplet)

I am not sure Venus can be trusted either. Hiding in her shadow however could be a good ploy, just don't make her jealous.

I miss feeding the sea gulls, I wonder...do they miss me?

I enjoyed this piece. How often do we find ourselves wishing we could do just that -- fly away.

Cultivating Venus in oneself is a wise move after a stretch in prison !

Sprouting wings and flying away is sometimes the best...
