    Memories erode – if not they explode…or implode. This is great!

  5. I love this. It makes me aware today that there are many moving parts, and they all play together, potentially. How will my parts play today? How much control do I have over the way they do?

    How much control *don’t* I have?

      It’s fascinating to me how the words we put out there are shaped and molded by the readers. Each person seizes a distinct meaning. Thanks for sharing yours!

    memories

    personal, social
    identities

    our bodies

    Love the use of language in this one! simple yet powerfully gets the point across! Bravo

  8. I like this very much love the way the shape of the poem reflects the message, as if it’s being nibbled away around the edge. And of course erosion is a form of shape-shifting and transformation – sometimes from one beautiful shape to another as we can see when contrasting the Rockies and the Appalachians. So glad you liked my poem so I could find yours.

    Hey thanks for the follow! As an analytical idealist, an ENTP if you will, I am inspired to connect more with the abstract and attempt to connect it with the absolutes 🙂 dreams do come in boxes, and the future has been seen yet merely forgotten
