Ignorance| a poem

single rose,lone rose,rose bud,winter,rose in wintertime,
  Ignorance

Ignorance on the floor below me
She doesn’t remember
She is struggling to understand
I try not to get angry
Remember she hadn’t been born yet
When the towers fell

  2. Profound…people are shaped not only by the world they live in and the experiences they’ve had, but also by what they’ve missed. It’s like the “negative space” of a sculpture, the air between the curves of alabaster. It’s as much a part of the sculpture as the carefully carved rock.

    Also wanted to tell you that your photo is quite striking.

    • Thank you Jan! I worked for a while to set that photo up. We were snowed in, but my husband had bought me a rose for my birthday so I was playing around with it. I took several photos with it in different places.
      I love your comment about negative spaces! What you cut away matters as much as what you leave.
