Artist's Description

The book fell open to
The page that I have read
So many times before.

The wind scatters about
The days not long ahead.
Yes, tis too familiar a song I hear.
Just the tune,
Slow and precise.
No words are needed
To convey its’ meaning.

This path is worn
Yet my footprints are still
visible from a time
not far behind.

Oh yes, I have been this way before.
Yet each time it’s just as painful as before.
And if the truth be known,
It always hurts me more.

I stand – alone – walking this road,
reading this page, hearing this song.
Wondering if it will last,
And wond’ring just how long.

S is for Sorrow & Sadness

My artistic assignment was to complete the Dragan effect & create a writing that conveyed the feeling I thought was projected by this image.
