The Puppet Seller



Baroda, 2011.

I Hold The Strings
Not So I Can Control The Dancers,
But In The Hope
They’ll Choreograph My Weary Fingers To Life.

Thank you for this image and sentiment. Maybe your perception will help my hands pick up my drawing and painting tools and let my art work give life to my hands.

Kind wishes,
am

You are the best storyteller, both with your pictures and your prose.

Wow! Didn't realize you have a sleeping Poet in you!

That's a unique picture, thank you for sharing...

Just curious - did you buy one?

That's lovely.

Am: Thank you. I hope it does. At times, triggers can come from unexpected corners.

Riot Kitty: Thank you for what is indeed riotous praise, and you left me beaming with your comment. :-)

Brian Miller: Thank you.

NRI Girl: Neither did I :-) I never had a poetic bone in me, only occasionally something slips out disguised as poetry, sometimes more from form than metre.

No, I didn't. Travels happen with small bags, much to cover.

Dharmabum: Fine. Good to see you after long. How've you been?

Lynn: Thank you.

Been good, Anil. Thank you. Was lost and trying to find my way back - as it happens with me ever so often ;)

Anil P said...

Lgsquirrel: Thank you.

Dharmabum: Happens sometimes. Maybe even helps in the long run. In retracing steps journeys evolve.

Red: Thay sure are.
