Images Retreat

Updated on March 4, 2016
we see what we want to see
we see what we want to see | Source


we see what we want to see,

carving out dreams

making meaning in threads

looped around days

as we tie ourselves together.


our tales find relief in reflection

our hearts, in retreat.

      I like the photo you used to go with the poem. I like to read the words as I look at the photo and see what meanings come to me. Beautiful as always Audrey.

      I believe that reflection and retreat define so many things. Nice work, and a beautiful reminder.

      Beautifully expressed, Audrey! Reflection and retreat are safe havens in this crazy-paced world. They keep us centered. Glad to hear you are submitting your fine work out there. All of the best!

      Yes, I do believe we see what we want to see, and our dreams are born from that. Something I'm going through at this moment in time makes me relate to your words well. Nicely written as always, Audrey. You possess a magic to say a lot with a few words. Brilliant.

      Audrey,

      The imagery you create is special

      To each of your friends

      And with life's ups and downs

      Your poem blends

      In as few words as possible

      You have expressed a beginning and an end

      *

      *

      Blessings and Hugs

      I find myself retreating to a more gentle time, then I look around and see the need to get involved. Retreating heart..Beautiful!

      Mary Wickison 18 months ago from Brazil

      This is beautiful and so true. I think especially for older people as we do spend possibly too much time thinking about the past.

      Thank you Mike! Actually, I finally did publish my first piece in a literary journal recently--and am sending pieces out now for submissions to others--It is a whole other ball game out there

      I liked the images this created. You can say so much with so few words. Bill is right, a good, strong publicist is needed. Have you taken the leap and published?

      I'm slow to get to this one and there are no comments??? Do people know what they are missing when they don't read your poetry? Talk about self-deprivation!!!!! We need to find you a publicist, Audrey. Your poetry should be read by everyone.
