a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Letting Go II

 pedal into the night
trying hard my plight
disappear grow light
letting go take flight
give up the fight

turn not left nor right
coast pulled by a kite
thinking black and white
surrender not today
tomorrow I might

go to Letting Go to see first edition

  1. So in love with your phantoms. They teach us a lot! Your images make us go deeper too. This new stanza by Jeff is fantastic! Great that you are enriching your posts with work of fellow-bloggers ~ Really like that!

  2. A very nice photo by Jeff. I really like the almost transparent bike ride. Nice use of long shutter speed. I like the poem, too.

    Meryl has been kind enough to let me tag along on her coattails, hopefully it will spark more interest in her excellent blog. Who will be next to volunteer a verse? Get your pencils ready and GO!

    Just noticed that the shape of the poem could be an hourglass, is time running out? Or maybe it’s the symbol for infinity, but standing proud and upright.
