Arch #writephoto prompt

First in this week…

Not Tomatoes

I dreamt of holding white dresses

like a wedding

because we all seek to be adorned with beauty

don’t we?

A brown cake rippled

in frosted garlands by a child’s

hand guided with a confidence

so easily lost to age

My feet run the hallway of records

life’s footsteps echoing off walls

which seem so solid to the mind

The light beyond the tunnel almost

an illusion

when matter enfolds the path

    You took the picture, but did you also write the words? I was captured first by what I thought was the title ‘Not Tomatoes’. It took reading the poem and a small brain twitch to recognize it was a link to another site. So, of course, I am left with the question–who wrote the words. Because my brain was stuck on there being no tomatoes in either the photo or the poetry and I couldn’t let that go long enough to contemplate the text. I think I’m suffering some sort of mid-life intellectual drift. Sigh. Perhaps I should come back to this after a second cup of caffeine.

    I was able to at least appreciate the last line:

    “The light beyond the tunnel almost

    an illusion

    when matter enfolds the path”

    That last bit ‘when matter enfolds the path’ that was just pure. Pure thought. Pure joy. Pure something I can’t describe. But it spoke to me.

    • The photo credit belongs to Sue. I just used it as her #writephoto prompt to create the poem. The “Not Tomatoes” is the title of my personal blog, which Sue linked to. Not related at all to the poem or photo. 🙂 Glad you liked the last line.
