She moves languidly through the days
A listless performance
Like an overly rehearsed play
Empty echoes bouncing
Like holograms you cannot touch
making no impact
Time for a curtain call
A scene change
A new script
Not a sequel
Not a remake
A character change
Leaving the familiar behind

  1. Seasons that don’t live up to expectations are like everything else that never does. Isn’t it always true the event you believe will be a total bust are the most fun and the ones you wait for with skipping hearts never quite fulfill. Well captured here!

    A chrysalis, metamorphosis. She had to shed the cocoon to fly. That’s beautiful

  4. I love the imagery. Holograms are so evocative of the intangible.

    Love the imagery too – and yes, sometimes we need to change as the seasons do.

    The listlessness and emptiness is reflected strongly in your words. If I were being flippant (like now) – I’d say she needs a good holiday- or happiness.

    This is a totally different thing. Nothing to connect it to the previous ones. Being innovative is not easy. Rightly so Mary!
