Magpie Tale 126...Alone




Winter's touch on glass

old stones through cigarette smoke

lost in heart of ice





One of my favorite Scottish artists; here's a simplistic heiku for Jack Vettriano's painting "Yesterday's Dreams," at Magpie Tales 126.  (This woman reminds me so much of myself last October when I went home to Edinburgh, alone, for the first time.  I often stared out windows; everywhere I looked was haunted by my loss, and the past)

      Jack struck too close to home on this one.

    1. Thank you.

      The first time I saw this painting at Magpie Tales, I felt the pain. The words came in an instant of memory.

    1. Thank you so much.

      Sorrow is definitely not a warm emotion.
