The beauty with sites such as TCE is that we can not only express ourselves through words but also images to accompany our intent. Particularly faces are emotive and expression so uniquely affecting us with subtlety and nuance. Again it is a great inspiration for writing to read into human expressions and let the pen do its thing. I have once again embedded the artwork with the poem, and together they transform into something else, something more than their separate parts. Enjoy…
A face reveals the sorrow,
the hurt pervading skin and mind,
and trust an ideal won then lost,
through a penance of the blind,
yet hope is always lingering,
for a heart to hold and honour,
for every hurt in time dispersed,
the lessons gained to ponder.
In writing generally, we seek to be inspired, to find open doors and connect with our humanity in all its raw and complex aspects. In doing so we have an endless content, the nuances of which would take us lifetimes to explore and express. Photos I find, a great start with inspiration: the stories untold.
