Merely Memories

by Estrella Azul I decided to postpone, although delay means forgetfulness. Emotions were lost, inspiration has flown aside, and it was gone. As an aged photograph, a Polaroid, whitish, dusty, like a room lit by sun rays filtered by thick curtains, as diffused light over the city… merely faint memories remained of our life together.

Heart wrenching, Estrella, but so beautiful. I love the aged photograph as a metaphor for a distant memory.

This paints such a vivid picture Estrella. Beautiful poem!

Yes, delay often leads to forgetfulness and loss.

Not only do you show us beautiful photographs with your camera, you do it with words, too.
