From Photo to Poem

Stories happen around us as we move through the day. Capture vignettes with a camera. Return to them in writing.

Solemente in Los Suenos (Only in Dreams)

Down a side street in Barcelona, 
three men stretch on a picnic table. 
Landlocked, they drowse through
dreamscapes, wings pinioned,
haunted in tattered clothes
in tangles of silence.
They clutch fragments
of stolen joy.
Mirages hover,
to rob them of songs.
They rouse to gather
plastic bags filled
with false spirits
and shards of glass.
