A visual world

Had some time the other day, and so wrote the below on seeing this art work by Matilda Emgård over at –

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie

Photo Challenge #33 “Endless Walk”

 

A visual world to listen for at times,

As I find myself deep inside signals, sign and semaphore,

 

 A visual world

Her endless walks, up there high on a wire,
Leads her friend gently through each storm,
Did you hear all those songs they’ve sung together,
Perhaps you heard every conversation they shared.

There’s something about those many miles they’ve covered,
What a wonderous two strangers sharing colours they’ve lived,
Out beneath their black umbrella cover, her red shoes to lead their way,
Out inside their hidden stories, painted black between high-wire and storm.

Strangers no more journeying wire, they know where their going,
Friends with good hearts and their unwritten tales to share.

  1. Very lovely poem, I absolutely loved this part :”There’s something about those many miles they’ve covered,
    What a wonderous two strangers sharing colours they’ve lived,”

    • It may not of been a most correct interpretation, but the weathering of storms and visualising life as art/colour, always fills my head before the words follow, like 50 shades to storms or 5o shades in desert/sea. Although sometimes it’s the tints and not the shades that standout, highlights rather than the history, but still the core to what colours life, come with some incredible choices in friends.

    • In many ways it reminded me of trust in one another, out on a wire/slackline and that difficulties ahead in life can be written in many different choices we have opportunities to make. Cheers…
