Beyond Barriers (Collaboration ~ Diana Lee photography)

“The Capture” by Diana Lee.

This heart
placed to an outside wall
of what was once considered to be a home.
Portions of what could be
hollowed out
to rest there alone.
With all the metal scrap
rusting
twisted
fenced in
weather-beaten
cold…
this placement
growing old
before the color
can even begin to fade,
this “life” made.
Something still stirs
in the softness of felt,
like a blanket of warmth
covered in red,
that still holds a dream,
the fabric of truth
held tightly in each fine thread,
that sees beyond this caged in view,
that feels far more scattering through,
that can break through the barriers,
fill up this space
and bring back the meaning
of love
of home
to this heart’s empty view,
freeing from this confined place.

    Lovely collaboration. It feels a melancholy poem, but the flow is nice.

  8. dustus says:

    This is a great collaboration from two individuals I esteem. The poetry and image work dynamically. I love the lines “Something still stirs / in the softness of felt,” A great turning point in the poem for a “felt heart” that wants to breakout from being captured. In turn, perfect photo for the poetic sentiment.

    Hi April,
    This one is another very touching blog that I can feel
    so familiar with. It makes my heart know that there are
    pulses that exist for which we are drawn to. An inherent knowing of
    what we need to take comfort in feeling so many similarities.
    Thank you my friend :-)
    btw I’ve changed my blog over to the link above for some privacy reasons.
    Please follow me there if you like.

    your photo is poetry in its own right, just gazing at it my mind envisions an endless array of the many fragments of love…the tangled heart…your poem moved mountains and pulled at my heart strings…how could it not with such amazing imagery and sensitive and delicate sentiment…i am in awe of your writing and lost in its depth…i joined one shot wednesday to learn…and there is an infinite amount of learning to discover here reading poems such as yours…your poem is an open honest view of your heart and i do believe you’ve set your heart free from its confined place…absolutely beautiful writing…

  12. April,

    I loved reading this poem, your choice of structure allowed me to set my flow, and it just drew me along. A pleasure to read.

    Thanks for sharing :)

    A great collaborative post, so many homes are broken, empty and neglected and that love is essence. I thought you delivered a beautiful tempo and form and your expression was touching. ~ Rose

  14. Love this piece April and the collaborative efforts of creative individuals. Beautiful, you never cease to impress me!

  15. nothing moves more than
    departed dreams, from station
