They make me wait in kinetic motion mystically zooming in zooming out, and my eyes focus on irises of a frame where a hundred gulls flap a brief moment: carefully, I seize the image till they dash off into pieces of onion flakes, almost lost in transition as my knees scratch the stones for stealing angles of hiding beaks. Following the trail, I chance on an oversized orchard of trellis and bluebells knighting the glitter of vines sprawled on canes of pine wood… with my waist curled, the singular charm of this memory grabs my eyes: flowers posing without shame, beautiful like summer ‘s shape; and I go romping in the blur of rain searching for another row of same gulls panting. Aiming for a perfect range, I fire the shutter in strobe-like effect, feeling the pumping sensation in the blood: the twitch on my hands peaks until the lens connect to this heart on days when my pupils release a thrill of wonder in a field trailing miraculously on nature’s expanse. And life’s fleeting motions are frozen into a visual romance never to be seen in same way. Yet, as flashes of instances are arranged in a collage of dreams , Kodak images portray those I loved, encountered, and never known … but tattooed on skin of memory’s seasons.

    At first I thought you were playing a game of hide and go seek. I like how you let us see the world through your lens.

    Hi Nette, I do not know you well but I did see a great outpouring of love while you were away and that speaks volumes as to the person you are. Welcome back.

    I will check in with you now and again until your membership expires. Your poetry will always reign here, no one writes like you, no one ever will. And your energy, positivity, is soooo missed, doll. But if you are happy elsewhere, then I am happy FOR YOU. Still, give a toodle, okay? xox love sent!

    ARE YOU OKAY? Please, just one line? I can't recall seeing you here since that storm and I had felt that you were safe, but now I am VERY worried. If you have had enough, I understand... just gimme a wave?? Please, just let me know. Between your health concerns and the Phillipine weather... and my imagination... I am thinking very bad/sad things. You are very missed. XOX Cyndi
