Wow. Imagery is spectacular, but also saddening. Great work.

Thank you Devereaux. Your time and feedback is greatly appreciated.
Beautiful poem! I love the metaphor taking center stage in those three lines 🙂
Lovely work. I love the black/white and all shades of grey work. Must try that myself sometime.
Thanks Roland. Credit must go to Canva for a bit of photo-shopping. I am glad you enjoyed it.
There’s always a beauty in the small things, but also sadness in what once was. That’s captured here very well. 😊

Thank you Sarah. Your kind comment is much appreciated 🙂
You’re welcome! 😊
Yes i must say the beauty that was once “there” is captured in this art and poem..
Great one Davy..
Thanks so much! 😊
Thank you Mich. Your kind words are appreciated 🙂
That is beautiful and sad Davy D. Another one your potently powerful poems full of imagery. Emotions bubble to the surface.
Thank you Laura. It fits in nicely with your last blog post on what might happen if we don’t get to grips with trying to save the planet.
I thought that’s what you meant. It’s why I’m even reaching out to climate change deniers. And unlike my post, you didn’t sound preachy. 🙂 Poetry plays an important role. I wish your poem along with the image could be plastered across the world. For now, I guess Tweeting will have to do.
Thank you Laura. We can never stop trying. That reminds me must check my Twitter account 🙂
Ohhhh, Davy…this one sends me…beautiful, wonderful, wistful, mournful…. I LOVE it.
Thank you Delyn. I am happy you liked it 🙂
I sure did 🙂
Oh, I dread the day when love will be nothing but just mere remnant. This is beautiful, D, and profound…
Thank you Maria. We can only fight to stop it from being so 😦 I appreciate you taking time out to read the poem and comment.
the beautiful imagery infused with nostalgia made me sigh, a sad but contented sigh. ❤
Thank you Rosema. That it is beauty of poetry we can all pick up different interpretations and emotions from the reading 🙂 I am glad you enjoyed the poem.
i agree. every reader is a poet on his/her own. 😉
So many things are now in the past. The sad thing is we could have saved at least something if not everything that’s deteriorating on this planet but yet, we don’t seem to learn. Will we ever?
So true NJ. Despite all the agreements made by various governments it seems to have little effect. In the UK the government have just given permission for fracking to start 😦
Beauty and pain at a time. Expressed so well.
Than you Kavita and I appreciate you taking time to read the poem and comment. Have a good weekend 🙂
