Confetti of time

photographer Rosie Hardy



a phantom of myself
blowing away cobwebs of time
I ponder in  midst of confetti
scattered by unknown forces
I'm not getting any younger

I am lost in 14-inch TV

  3. You capture a moment preceding conscious change—questioning of growing older and being in time.

  15. Gautami,

    As I have said so many times, it is pleasure to read you. I liked Walk the Past and this one the best out of pending ones I read.

    Take care
