Hello World…well as long as I’ve got a connection…let me try to connect with you all!
Last week I asked you to show me something worth saving…
The Eclectic Poet wrote a lovely poem attached to a photo which speaks of the past…some we’ve all known:
I never wrote for you
This is something that I only noticed recently
When that disquiet in my mind finally formed itself into the thought
I felt terrible
Terrible has become an everyday way for me to feel
This was worse than that
On the heels of the realization came also the images of what we have been
Of what we are not
I wondered to myself if maybe I didn’t write for you because we were both too busy living a real life
Retrospect tells me now that you showed your love in so many small ways that perhaps weren’t flowery or poetical but they were real and to this very moment, I can see the evidence of how you cared
I will never stop feeling guilty and ashamed for having allowed my own frustrated dreams to take me away from a place where we might have found our way back to each other
I made my choice at that crossroad and the Devil found me
Now I can say that I have written something for you. I only wish that it wasn’t an obituary for what was once you and me.
This is a very moving poem, thank you so much for sharing…don’t forget to drop by for other great poems!
Rob from Rob’s Real Life sent several photographs this week and each one represents something worth saving…I’ve chosen on of her photos for it’s literary theme:
This house was the residence of Edgar Allen Poe, he rented it for a year…for this and many other interesting photos (I did so love the velvateen bunny) go to visit Rob’s post!
Patchwork Ponderings put up a lovely post:
Her dedicated to saving Ball’s Falls (Ontario) on the Niagara Peninsula is a post worth browsing through for its lovely photos and reportage…take a look!
Blog it or Lose it also wrote a beautiful poem ( a haiku), referring to…Eastern State Penitentiary:
painful blisters on /
these monuments to order /
reflect our sick hearts /
This post is extrememly interesting and informative…a post worth reading, believe me!
Finally to conclude, Canadian Travelbugs takes us to Angkor Wat where she went over Christmas:
There are quite a few photographs here one more interesting than the other as well as explanations a post worth reading and a site worth saving!
Thanks everyone for your efforts…See you next week!
