Memory Keepers

 
collecting stories
like the pages it creates
some fact, some fiction
each leaf holding memories
of the way things used to be

  1. I like the connection between the leaves and the pages of stories - each so prolific and yet subject to the seasons.
    Thank you for participating in the tanka prompt on Real Toads.

  8. This is exquisite...the connection in the tree to the story and deep into the root of how things used to be...very effective layering here, Kathryn. I love the image as well. :)

    1. Thanks Hannah, thanks for seeing the layering. This was about life and memories, trees and leaves, books and pages and the connectedness of them all.

  19. Well... the photo takes my breath away - and the words are a great accompaniment. Collecting, Holding... and we can never go back. Must move forward,which in this case, means they must fall to regenerate... :)
