Photo Challenge #53, March 24, 2015 – Microcosm

I held you in my hand

Felt the passing of an age.




Footsteps upon a far off shore

Could they have been yours?

A lover


In despair?

A microcosm captured forever

A story waiting to be told

    All those things and more…
    Each drop even if briefly captured, equally mystifies –
    including the soft coo of mourning doves 🙂

    A lovely poem, so expressive. I love the way you link it all to a little microcosm.

  7. This is really lovely, Michael!

  8. Beautifully written, but I was distracted by the conversation between you and Lyn lol

    I like the way you ended the poem with a few one word lines. Somehow it added to the mystery of the upside down marble image. Query, especially.

Please feel free to comment, I appreciate your thoughts.
