The Girl in the Photograph

21 Aug

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

This is not one of my new ones – I think I first posted it six years ago, but I hope you enjoy. Sometimes I see a girl in a photograph…..

    So very lovely. The way longing opens us.
