Shadow Shot Sunday...I Slip Away


whilin' away the hours
shelled peas in red rimmed pans
share plates with fried green tomatoes as
sweet tea quenches a summer's burn
the rains pass by
and the sun dries my harvest heart
winds will call the oriole's song
as the soprano dreams of my day slip away
my silent soul sighs
into the night
on the road that I return to again and again
till the end of my days
down graveled paths of kindness and caring
guided by ghosts of mem'ries past
I while away the time
into the hours passed by
I slip away
I slip away
into a sweet view

I am not sure which I want to rave about more. . . the photograph or the poem. Both are stunning and could easily stand on their own - the fact that you've brought the image and the words together so expertly is a real treat. (I also listened to the wings by brokeback mountain while reading the poem - excellent).

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Yeah! week-end come to an end to quick as long we're enjoying the week.

And that's I can't wait coz it always excites me with our meme.

Your shot today is really one of a kind. Your amazing artist, Lady?

ENjoy!

Love you're old chopper in the pan - brings back memories of canning with the grandparents - so much fun!!

Lori R. said...

Grandma used to have a red rimmed pan just like that. We would peel potatoes in the shallow water in it on the porch. Your words are so lovely. Hope ya had a good weekend. I went to the shed for a few minutes around noon. Downtown was a ghost town. Hope you had a better day...

Hey Harriet said...

Love your photo this week and the poem was perfect! I've just been scrolling through your 'white shop blog' and what fun I had! I so wish I could visit your adorable little store!

Jacqui said...

Your blog is so well named - it is a sweet repose indeed. Lovely shot - and Iowa looks a great place to be xxx

Katie said...

Love this one! Give me anything old and enameled and I'm happy. The poem is lovely too.
Have a great week

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Enamel basin,
cradling water for washing
farmers’ dirt-caked hands…

Carin said...

Funny, but all I see is a big black square. No shadow, nothing, just blackness.
Love the poem you that goes with it.

Elizabeth said...

As ever a super match of words and image.
Sorry I've been rather out of touch lately
too much family

Dianne said...

the shadow so fits the words
illusive yet comforting

Chris said...

I like glass shadows, they are so neat because of their translucent shadows.

Gallery Juana - ギャラリー ワナ said...

I love these kinds of enamel pots. They make me think of breezy summer days and warm memories.

I always enjoy your poetry.

Tilda said...

I'm catching up after working all week. Yes, the shoes are now OFF as well as the harness (bra). I am too old to work like this!!!
Absolutely LOVELY shot and the poem is extrodinary. While I know we are NOT to copy, I copied it anyway for Beulah to say over me when they scatter my ashes in the hayfield high atop the swamp for my final resting place. I am looking for interesting words, rather than the ordinary reads of life's celebrations. This one of journey is perfect. Thanks my friend.
in fondest. Tilda

Lisa's RetroStyle said...
