Response to Obscure Sorrows

Klexos : The Art of Dwelling on the Past

“Your life is written in indelible ink. There’s no going back to erase the past, tweak your mistakes, or fill in missed opportunities. When the moment’s over, your fate is sealed. But if you look closer, you notice the ink never really dries on any of our experiences. They can change their meaning the longer you look at them…

Maybe we should think of memory itself as an art form, in which the real work begins as soon as the paint hits the canvas. And remember that a work of art is never finished, only abandoned. ” (John Koenig)

Delicately balanced

Fleeting moments

Painted with emotions

Waiting to unlock

Key to personal truth

Malleable in time


About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    This poem is haunting. Malleable in time…a sign of hope perhaps. The painting imagery you carry over from the quote/link is beautiful. Very nice!
