RESURRECTION

RESURRECTION

Sixteen millimeter memories
smiles frozen in time
ghosts in slow motion
reliving a moment of mortality.
false resurrections
tricks of the mind
suspension of disbelief.
keeping the dead alive

of the best I have ever seen from you; this brought forth some of the best emotional response I have had in awhile! ~ Gee

keeping in touch We have poets around the world and it is fun

all night or on the other side of the world.

Thanks, Geez. I almost decided to give up writing. I deleted most of those I had written of late.

that you never give up! We can't always hit a home-run, but if we keep trying, we will a good many!
Again, very well written, reminds me of 'Esker-like' work. Short and to the point of one-thought descriptions.

just wow
i absolutely love this

it is so very emotional, without being so, if that makes sense
the first and last lines say it all, the bit in the middle is descriptive icing

truly, one of the best writes I've seen from anyone

sorry to be gushy, but this really hit my heart
thank you for sharing
love judy
