Over-Saturation

 

Photo by Sean McCormick.

It is a rush—world—

Nothing holds not still above the

Colored creations of memory.

Years in the making the foundations

Sound and solid arise yet

Time bleeds into the framework,

The tumble of tumultuous tints tingeing like

Rainbows bursts of blown out washers –

We don’t forget, but the lines they

Blush against the battery of luminescent life –

We color detail till it all seems dreams,

And the world it circles and it sighs

And we’re rolling in the dyes of little lies

Watching change day by day.

Just beware of

Over-saturation.

* My submission to the latest One Shoot Sunday Photo Prompt, with that lovely barn/grainery shot provided by one Sean McCormick, a Canadian Photographer that is the focus of my latest interview for One Stop. Great guy, with some truly stunning nature photography…it absolutely breathes with life, history, and all the shadows of memories gone before. Have a look when you get the chance, and check out all the other poets inspired by the prompt!

  1. Loved this one, Chris, with it’s wild alliteration ride and under the splashiness, a subtle and smart message..”…We color detail till it all seems dreams…” and a very strong and clinching ending drives the point home.

    Also enjoyed the interview and Sean’s amazing images–look forward to part two.

  2. Love the alliteration weaving its way to consciousness at the end. Especially liked “And we’re rolling in the dyes of little lies
    Watching change day by day. ” Made the surreal real. Thanks, Gay

  4. Oh.. I like how this transcended from dreamy images to stark truth…
    A very good message at the end! We are so aware of the happenings around us.. and yet, irrespective of how much we “like” them, we just seem to absorb it all… somehow, the word ‘saturation’ fit it perfectly here..

    A superb take on the prompt, Chris!

  5. wow chris – excellent write!!
