old pictures of people leaving a boat.
a child closes an eye and tries
to see half of what is.
breath on the window. no. gone.
a hammer upon a nail. no. rusted.
a warning shout disappearing in the air.
footsteps in the sand. one foot
close to another. a red light
in a deserted street. can you
see a plant grow?
everything is in frames. we love
and remember some.

I got sad when reading this poem. Like when you have a look at your old photo albums, and realize that time will never come back. I think your words are inspiring. Thanks.

"can you see a plant grow?"
I'm spinning around your poems for a while. There are not many posts on lit.org so deep as your poems are. And most of all I like the form you found for the ideas. After all not only the idea does matter, isn't it?!

Thanks
The theme is from feelings after looking at an old picture. The form is inspired by several different things I`ve listened to and read, it isnt really fresh, but just feels natural. I like more to write scenes than classic poetry.

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.
