The Girl in the Photograph

07 Aug

Felicity Jones by Mark Abrahams

The girl in the photograph

The girl in the photograph
is swagger and poise
shyness and hope
uncertainty and strength

The girl in the photograph
is desire and fear
softness and style
fantasy and real

The girl in the photograph
is hunger and joy
knowledge and warmth
rebellion and love

The girl in the photograph
is danger and sex
promise and dreams
intelligence and wild

The girl in the photograph
is not mine
but I wish
she was

The photograph here is the stunning English actress Felicity Jones, and was taken by Mark Abrahams for GQ Magazine in 2014.
The poem is not about her or this photograph (though it is certainly about someone in a photograph) but she illustrates it well

This is not one of my new ones – I think I first posted it two years ago, but I hope you enjoy.

    A photograph can have long lasting effects on ones phyche, captivate and haunt our dreams and waking hours, a voice as well. Beautiful and eloquent poetry Mr. D.
