"I am hearing poetry when awake,
dreaming poetry when asleep,
breathing poetry with each breath,
I am living in a poem."
This is hauntingly touching me in many ways! It reminds me of age, losing one's memory and the art work I just submitted to a challenge~Susan your words illuminate the once cherished thoughts and shine on their offerings being wonderful days! Beautiful and sad...
I can picture the person fadeing like the words
It is really sad to lose words and just chase shadows. It steals our ability to communicate.
I love old letters in faded envelopes. It is a great pity that letters have fallen out of fashion in the present era.
I am touched by this. So very beautiful!!bridging the past with the future
poignant ....I have come upon old letters written by deceased family members and I wonder who will have remnants of written letters in the years to come when so many people now only use email?
... 'glory of vocabulary' ~~~ we are reminded of this glory as we read your words.
I remember when I could ONLY write with a pen. Have now learned to "write" with a keyboard, but I feel my mind-poetry connection was purer with a pen. I love this poem's glimpse of , perhaps, an aging woman's dwindling memory. Haunting.
Sad...and a great ending to bring it home.=)
So sad that it did not sustain. Some do face such abrupt endings. But there were still the memories, though! Wonderful write Susie!Hank
A very effective imagistic pairing of ideas here, Susie - the fading of the ink and the dissolution of memories. Delightful.
Egad you are right , email must be so much easier when one gets older ..... Very presciient , thanks Anyone seen Berowne this week ?
She once knew how to speak with a pen...oh I like that...
Oh I'm hoping her yesterday's ink will bring tomorrow's joys! Lovely poem.
Yes, it's must be sad to realise and hard to accept that one's talents as a writer are fading.
Aww! I feel the sense of loss in your words with the thoughts fading and that especially sorrowing close. Great writing Susie!
Yesterdays ink would hold wonderful memories... this was eloquently written. Most lovely!
Let's not forget how to "speak with a pen"!
