Miss Havisham's Wedding Dress

Lace
Flimsy
Floats on air
Like yesterday’s
Dreams

Sad
Broken
Mourning love
Alone bereft
Lost

    I guess the dream came and went, at least that's what I find in your verse. You sure pull opposites together in this amazing verse. Nice write and I do enjoy your kind visits.

    wow, you sure let that picture carry you to an interesting picture of this sad thing. Kind of the same mood as my own lanterne. Yes,I really hate that we can't see old poems of our friends. It really sucks, Jack. What are they gonna change (I mean RUIN) next? haha. LUv,Andrea

    great take on the picture....love it!! Well I do a little art and one of the first artist that I admired was andrew Wyeth. His father was NC wyeth who was a famous illustration artist. His works are very famous in America...Andrew died this last year I believe, he was up in years. I have several of his books.

    Incredible, Jack! You have described so eloquently the dress Miss Havisham saved throughout her life. What a brilliant take on the contest. I hope the sponsor has read Dickens' "Great Expectations." Surely, this is a winner in my book. Love, Carolyn
