An Ode to No One

March 29, 2010

An Ode to No One, originally uploaded by cybele malinowski.

You came.
You saw.
You conquered.

I stayed.
I watched.
I relinquished.

The time to be
Is lost
In between cracks
Of memories
That fade
Like aged indigo ink
On yellowed paper.

And I say,
And you say,

And really
All that matters
Is Us.

All that matters
Is the Us
That exists
So pristine
So perfect
In each other.

    nice one. love the image to go with the words… especially liked the lines;

    That fade
    Like aged indigo ink
    on yellowed paper.

    So, have you submitted any of you poetry to contests, or do you prefer to share it with us? I would like modern poetry a lot better if more poets wrote like you.

    Grace: will see…just puttering around..

    I’m pretty confident that you will. Of course, one of my goals in life is to hook as many people as possible onto Ozu. :-)

    This is a very eerie and striking piece. The photo is amazing, and I love the concept of time being lost between cracks of memories. Very original.

    Grace: Thank you.
