Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Mesmerizing Moments

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>I very much like the tone of your poem and your ending is quite lovely.  I think we are all somewhat enchanted by old photographs and the memories they stir in us.  I'm wondering if you might want to try to paint some word pictures for these vivid thoughts – example: "we remember those places far away in miles" might become – we remember mountains rising out of the mist – or, rivers that flowed to the sea — or, flowers or clouds – whatever memory the photo conjures up.  Poetry is so much more powerful when we can "see, taste, touch, smell, and hear" the images that the poet is creating.  Thank you so very much for sharing your work with me.  Your friend in poetry, Susan</p>

Mesmerizing Moments

<p style="text-align: left;">The moment was short and exciting<br />Overwhelming too in fact,<br />Isn't it too interesting,<br />That happiness stayed intact!</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">On seeing the bright smiles <br />In the photographs,<br />We remember those places far away in miles,<br />That the photo traps.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">It brings a smile on our face,<br />Longing for that moment once more,<br />Like the shell playing with water's pace,<br />Which is later washed ashore.</p>
