Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

Sonny Hathaway the landscape painter had a stroke
which made him blind, his wife had passed away a month
earlier, he had been working on a painting of them both
before his stroke.
Sonny had a dream that night about his wife, she had her
fingers pressed against the bedroom window, he was woken
by fingertips pressing onto his eyelids, a pair of hands guided
Sonny to the canvas to help him finish the painting of him and
his wife Sonny could see the painting but not his wife.
Sonny went back to sleep, saw his wife, they left for paradise.

Hi Barry,   I like this new you.   Your poem clearly tells a poignant story.  

I miss the old you.  In the clarity don't throw away the imagery that is so unique to your writing.  I didn't always understand the old you.  But I admired your unique way of expressing images.
