Bastet’s Shadorma Photo Prompt # 3 – A Past Time


A doorway

Ornate opening



Heralding a former time

Take a step forward.



Wrought iron railings



Travelling back to days gone by

I pause to reflect

  1. These are beautiful Michael I am especially taken with the second

  2. Bastet says:

    Wonderful shadorma Michael…you’ve mastered the form and your words fit the photos so well!

  3. Writing very freely with these Michael, the words certainly tie in with the picture, giving a sense of past and longing.

  4. Al says:

    I really like that

  5. Always a bitter sweetness to travel back in time.

  6. JackieP says:

    The words so fit the picture and the longing for a simpler time perhaps? Well done Michael.

  7. Suzanne says:

    This is interesting. It really captures that strange feeling visiting a building from the past can conjure up sometimes – and an poetic form I am not familiar with. I will have to follow your link and investigate.

  8. Very nice, Michael. I too especially love the 2nd stanza…lovely.

  9. This is so so beautifully done, Michael. 🙂
