    dotsHalf Expecting Youdots

    Your startled eyes
    the way your hands almost leapt forth
    made you appear trapped in the photograph.
    I put the picture on the table,
    knocked on it like a door
    half expecting you to jump out
    or pull me inside
    for a mug of cocoa
    and whatever else you desire
    to warm your body
    and hopefully your heart.

      I liked this until I got to the last line. I realise that the picture evokes great comfort and sentimentality (the good kind!), akin to a mug of cocoa on a cold evening, but even still cocoa felt like a letdown. A swathing hug, or tender kiss, a gentle caress that smoothed away frown lines and their gnawing tension was what I wanted to hear. But up until the final line I was enoying the poem. I can imagine how a picture could look so real. I liked what you mentioned about the hands held open in such a way that they looked as if they could break through the pane. So I'm a bit 50-50 on this.

      this is an interesting vignette. i can almost see the picture. i really just liek the way this poem about a photo is such a small "snapshot" in time.

      I like this it speaks well of your bright imagination and tells us of your longing. I like the "mug of cocoa" too, it qualifies the relationship in the realm of just "being with you" so that's a good idea. But I think one more thought or line about weather would help ground that idea, it comes out of the blue.

    I put the picture on the table
    Knocked on it like a door
    drops run on the window pain

    But you have to decide if and where you want this. It's really not that strange of a stretch, just an idea you might consider. http://www.eliteskills.com/smile.gif

      that was sweet with a tinge of melancholy, as you are obviously missing someone who's photgraph you are looking at (probably your bf, right?!). i like this little snippet, and it made me want to make a mug of hot chocolate, as today is a gloomy day here.

      Sounds like a longing to see your man in the picture...I do that kind of thing with pictures of my neices. In their pictures I see them smile at me saying "come play with me"...and I almost hear it. But they live in Chicago. It's always too long between visits when I notice they've sprouted 3 inches since I saw them last...

      The start? I'd say the end needs tweaking myself because the rest of the write makes it seem like it really was a rainy day, but then, ok cocoa does give a sense of comfort, but to me it follows a different theme. The whole piece builds up this whole sense of entrapment and suspense, and then 'cocoa?' It all seems a little premature to me...

      cocoa...hmmm. and some cookies. that's what I have here now. delicious. the best on such a cold day like this. it feels colder than it really is because of the wind but anyway. this is a nice poem. interesting concept. never thought of wanting to interact with a picture. you really miss Paul I think. hope you have the chance to put your arms around him soon.

      Hey, really like the concept of the interaction with a static image. Love the way you express one concept and image so clearly. Did someone say something about a cup of cocoa? Be back in a sec. Thanx for your words.

      Still missing that guy of yours eh? Does he see these pieces? It's very nice, I hope he gets home soon. Although his absence may stir your creative juices.
