OneSingleImpression

complacency

love grows cool
in the evening light
a sip of wine
a sigh, a smoke
adieu gives notice
in a whiff of smoke

constrained by luxury
sheer invisibility
the scent of comfort
overwhelms the air

one single impression no 16: transience or permanence

  1. That is a beautiful subtle trace of a poem, so fragile and delicate, a poem like a distant trace of expensive perfume, beautiful.

  2. “constrained by luxury”
    great line

    I neither drink nor smoke so the experience you describe is not one I share but I do find the overwhelming scent of comfort in other ways.

    Excellent photo and poem. I have my own interpretation of this poem, of course, and boy, can I relate to it! It’s amazing what complacency can make you do (or not do).

    I love the chilly sadness (no I don’t, I hate it, but I love when someone else writes about it).

writing is everything...
