Collage of juncture

a once vibrant, now discolored rose, a memory of past that faded too fast now teeters atop an old photo my fingers stumble past it knowing if touched its petals would crumble it's a perpetual reminder of how fragile life really is the wedding photo, young lovers exchange promises of heart till death do them part beneath the folds of broken dreams through my eyes it seems they belong protected and framed within glass yet i wonder are they ashamed as they join together in the beyond my childhood through the ages a race of past, pages of life fading to death amidst my walls this collage of juncture can puncture my own heart as i remember each memory of time passing

    Tis to true Sandra; Yet if you live in the moment where there is no future or past you will be happier and your life will be full. Ofcourse we have memories. loves etc. but only if we keep them in their proper place can we truly create the next adventure and look through the eyes of love again. So many moments to be kind to discover to love. Like seeing everything each day for the first time. Make your moments golden. Michael

    wow, Sandra, this is such a moving piece. How did I ever miss it? So the collage contest never got judged yet, right? It must be for that one. I am anxious to see its winner list and can't even remember now whose contest that was!!
