Lovely poem, and it makes the picture come alive, knowing why he was alone on the beach.
I love that picture. Wrote four short poems for the prompt! (3 weren’t so good lol)
Your poem encompasses the vastness of possibilities.
the sky in the photo definitely prompts me to think of “vastness.” Thanks, nice take on it.
Adam do you know why I like reading your poems? It is because your words are few, but say so much. Beautiful image, both poem and picture.
smiles, Viola. Thank you
smiles. like another i read on this is am torn between finding each other for the first time and in the after before finding each other in eternity again…nice dustus!
your words display the peaceful expectation ot the photo..lots going on beneath the surface
Enjoyed reading this. Romantic.
Lovely! — peaceful expectation expressed beautiful.
Thanks for your comments, Everyone. glad people are enjoying taking part in the great prompt today!
Alone before they meet – such unexpected calmness in those words. Love it
Thanks also for the shout out on Twitter
With so few words you mirror the mystery I see in this photo. Blessings.
tyvm… enjoy the rest of Sunday
Hard to compress all that emotional nuance into a few phrases. Your style is unique, and effective I think because it seems your natural voice and as if no one else quite speaks that way.
hi adam…the photo was such a draw….your words work perfectly with this picture…excellent stuff my friend
thanks, buddy. It’s awesome to sit back and watch you at the top of your game. Your last crop of posts have been fierce. Congrats, Pete. Write On!
Love the scripted poem, beautifully presented and well-crafted words. The title gives the poem a bit of a haunting flavour.
Good way of putting it. I find love haunting at times. TY
Beautiful words to coincide with a beautiful picture. Short but sweet–calm but with a twinge of longing. Lovely.
Nice work again today, Chris. I think people are beginning to realize your hard work. Smiles on a great One Shoot, brother.
I like the way everyone has their own take on one photograph. Thank you for sharing Adam. Very poigniant.
Learned that you are an accomplished poet in your native tongue. Glad to see you posting again, shan I’m still a fan
I hope you haven’t googled me, that could be rather embarrassing! Not so much accomplished as practiced, and English is a whole different ball game
lovely Dustus ~ great write on a great pic ~ loved the interview some very interesting photography ~ enjoyed this
Glad you enjoyed the Sunday festivities
There is such hypnotic simplicity in the image of ‘alone before they meet’.
Thanks for dropping by my place and leaving a comment!
Thanks for taking part. I’m already looking forward to next week’s prompt.
I love the wanting and waiting undertone to this poem. There’s something seductive about the words and image. I was compelled to read it again and again. Well done!
Excellent. Thanks for re-reading it. I like when poems prompt me to do that too
I like the rhyme, and the complex syntax. Good stuff.
Good of you to point out the syntax on this one. Cheers
lovely thoughts of knowing…we all know don’t we when someone loves us…bkm
Must admit, I’m kind of clueless sometimes. lol
