She said – he said, two degrees of separation

May 25, 2012

Trying something different. My friend Margo wrote about her friend Joseph and the idea of a “quantum” poem. Think I got the basic idea. Here it is:

Sometimes I feel that my life is in not in my hands.

I think that I need to sketch a chalk line in my brain.

Sometimes a dream is the reality of a life I’ve imagined.

The way I imagine I see it is a vision and not the way it is at all.

Life and dream are miles wide and can reduce me to tears,

settle my head deep in reality and not  fly on in dreams.

So the excuse for eating a huge plate of fish and chips is...
these are days that must happen

    Love the photograph.

    The poem is exactly what is asked for. Three things going and all working together: marvelous. Great line: ‘I need to sketch a chalk line in my brain’.

    I’m going to leave a link at Joseph’s so others can read this.

      Thanks Margo.
      If you ever want any images just have them from the site or from my flickr, or ask me and I’ll send you something…it’s what I do. The pinterest pin is a plugin called Pinterest “Pin It” Button.
      PS (I wanted to draw a line in the sand in my brain but couldn’t make the line work! :))

    Enjoyed. Your photograph reminds me of Leonard Cohen’s song Bird on a Wire.
