Elemental

You walk in
The shadows
Of my mind.
On the periphery
Of visual acuity.
Ghostly imprinting
Upon the memory.
The smallest element
Of an image held,
A sensory development,
Processed in neurons,
Burnt upon the retina.
I reflect upon all
That you were that
Cannot be captured
In pixels, paint or prose.
In truth, you had us
All enraptured.
I cannot transpose
Your essence which
Remains, in perpetuity
Upon my soul,
A picture of evanescence.

Thanks to Helen for coming round all my local charity shops today, to help me find inspirational pieces to use in my work. So very glad you spotted the glass bowl! Hope you like how I’ve used it today.
