Reveal – #writephoto

Reveal

Foundation, firm,
yet clearly troubled,
given his demeanor
of inconsistencies.

Greater concern for
the attic of his thoughts,
barn swallows freely nesting,
dancing in the light of his eyes.

Oh, there is life there, yet,
but great care must be taken,
sweeping cobwebs and straw
from the farthest reaches.

There is more to that light
than just madness,
as the light touching
those recesses reveals.

The photo is provided in Thursday photo prompt – Derelict #writephoto at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo.

A comment by Daniel Tijuana has led me to the following revision:

Optical Illusion – #writespiration

I love what you’ve done with the place! It was so empty and wanting when you first found it. It’s too bad you and Stephen didn’t last as a couple. He would have loved this. Funny, how he disappeared.

Tell me, wasn’t this room larger? That wall seems so much closer, now.

In Writespiration #117 52 Weeks in 52 Words Week 21, Sacha Black offers a photo (above) and asks that we tell a story of why the room is empty – in exactly 52 words. My response is a sequel, of sorts, to the response by Jane Dougherty.

Seeds of Thought

Each moment carries
the greatest weight, whether
thought, promise
or action.

Some might say
they are remnants, but,
in truth, each is
intrinsic to our whole.

The thoughts we hold
in recesses meant
for dreams materialize
when we dare to act.

Poetry and blues.
Depth in a playlist.
The promise of a future.
Fragments of thought realized.
