Wavering curtains of the mind

I saw a minnow
through a window –
it turned into a widow
and left as a shadow

– James Steerforth

An enigmatic window for One Single Impression.

    Thanks, James. That is indeed enigmatic. And it reminds me how fleeting, how ephemeral, life is. Thanks for joining us this week.

    I like this poem a lot, James! 🙂 Yes my Bad Art Friday post was considered such because I think he was trying to depict the Christ on the fisherman and maybe the baby? A bit much… But thanks for visiting!
