a Photographic Journey by Meryl


turn the corner
tummy tight
standing still
pastels bright
on the horizon
like a sunrise
no blight

  3. The writer Jorge Luis Borges go blind when he was young, once wrote: This darkness is slow and painless;
    flows down a gentle slope
    and looks like eternity.
    My friends have no faces,
    women are what they were for so many years,
    the corners may be other,
    no letters on the pages of books.
    This should frighten,
    but it is a sweetness, a return.
    But I always colors I can see, they always are in my memory and my heart.
    Thanks Meryl for your post full of colors.

  4. You’re welcome, Carlos! I’m so touched that my work brings Borges to your mind….

    Hi Meryl, here’s a few more lines for this poem. “I can still picture my grandparents there. And me on the porch swing, with bees buzzing my hair. I wonder who lives here. If only they knew. That I made that weathervane, but grampa helped, too.”

  6. Lovely, Jeff….I wish I grew up there; maybe you can pictures the characters in your story living there?

      Hi Meryl, the patina of age and the random accumulation of buildings is something I actually have pictured for my story. I will send you a message about the setting later.
