A Poem by Lydia


photography by ella lance01





the edges of then, now, and later blur

while ancestors teeter on a peep hole in a memory

artistically they weave meaning

from smudges of obscure bits and pieces

spiraling images walk past me

faster now

 faster

strange how the rattle of years past brings comfort

magically speaking in the language of my soul

as the clouds of a new year separate

i continue to continue

dear Lydia... I see an image peeping in your photo ... a face in the snow ... frozen and yet warm to the memories of loved ones. The beauty of the leaves so intricately designed in perfect harmony with our feelings. We do continue to continue. truly, Pat

" ... ancestors teeter on a peep hole in a memory.". Wow. Just days ago Mom and I were out and some stupid little thing brought her Mother to her mind exactly when it did to mine. Somehow you've always had a knack of touching an emotional chord in me, and this excellent write is no exception. ~Jim

Breathtaking and marvelously written. We continue the struggle, the journey and the past learned memories. We must attain our place and reach inner peace in the process.

Life definitely seems to be regurgitated in cameo flashbacks that often seen veiled and obscure the more time passes. You capture the essence of growing older in this sensitive and emotionally charged piece Lydi.

I am not kind Lydi, but I am honest
Lydi, this poem is so beautiful, I'm going to my mother to make her read it right away! (She lives below my apartment) Every line is breathtaking and to me a celeberation of life. An instant favorite, an unforgettable poem!
