ebullient decay

how I rushed headlong into the un understanding

I wonder about the phones we made…tin cans on the end of string
your voice so clear

so why did we start playing chinese whispers instead

hanging the whispers on the string like ornaments…

      Thank you so much for all of your kind words and encouragement! It is such a lovely, and welcome, surprise! I have definitely learned that so much of the art is knowing when not to say anything as well. There was so much more I wanted to add to this one, but in the end it just took away from it instead. I really do feel honoured you appreciate it. Thank you! xo

    I loved how this made me wonder if I’ve communicated poorly in the past. It’s simply beautiful. And to your comment above, you’re right that sometimes it’s time to stop writing and post. It says more that way than if you added words – much like a sculpture, you take away words to expose the beauty.

      Thank you so much.
      It’s quite a big conversation really, isn’t it? The breakdown of communication and all the reasons why. And I appreciate your comment about sculpturing, thank you for your feedback.

    Here you mix the surreal with the ordinary. Exquisite work. My son, Zoolon by any other name, had mentioned you were accomplished. I can see his words were true.

      Wow Mike, thank you so much! And how very kind of George to say. That means a lot to me. I admire his work a lot.
      And I do like mixing in the surreal, I tend to do that with my really short stories too.
      I so appreciate you taking the time, thank you so much!

    I didn’t realise you were so melodramatic. How interesting considering we hardly know each other. I sincerely wish you all the best.
