Word Paintingsby Larry Yoke & Charlotte Nystrom
From the mirror of our imaginations come poetic life impressions.
Goodbye echoes across an empty floor
cold chills reverberate
deep inside her soul
frozen stillness punctuates
the shatter of broken homes
like aged and brittle glass
waiting for hello
but reclaimed words
and nailed shutters
often should stay closed...
