I am "Beholden" to you for this awesome poem. Your metaphor of a snowy landscape awaiting fresh footprints just blew me away.New snowfall of the author's intent is so good.As a free lance artist I see this working for that application too.It also reminds me of many times when I have painted over one piece of work with a pure white layer to reuse the canvas. We do that each day with a new start.
Dawn brings beginnings
Sunset clears the page
losing or winnings
it changes as we age.
I will be back to check out more of your thought-provoking style. Good work, my friend.
Interesting, it made me think of a news story from last week. A 25 year old man went missing 10 years ago. He was just found wedged between the wall and a huge air conditioning unit in the grocery store where he worked. I wondered why nobody complained about the smell. I enjoyed this one. Good work or play, however you feel about writing.
Wow, this was good. It's funny I thought it was going to end with a twist. I thought the old man had been duped into helping the woman commit suicide. That would be a good story too wouldn't it? You could write an alternate ending like that.
