d’Verse Poetics- Minimalism- Winds of Time

Poetics – Exploring the realm of Minimalist Photography | dVerse (

Photo from Glenn A. Buttkus’s site “South Sound Minimalist Photos”.

Marker of a memory called the past,
I enshrine.

Shining surface of now, this moment,
I mirror.

Facing forward toward the future,
I persevere.

The winds of Time, sublime.


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. This is gorgeously rendered! I especially like; “Shining surface of now, this moment, I mirror.” It really is a marker of the Great Depression.. the fancy hood ornament.. makes me wonder .. are we .. the current generation equipped to handle the unpleasantness? Perhaps. Thank you so much for writing to the prompt. 💝💝

    1. I’m so pleased by your comment!
      I wish I had more faith in the current generation. Their responses to many problems are less than courageous. Hope I’m wrong. 😉

  2. The memory is further enshrined in your words. Wonderful. I really felt drawn to this photo as well, but ended up using a different one.

  3. You, somehow, got past the haughtiness, the upper class arrogance, and picked up on a very positive vibe; I really dig it. Thanks for joining in.

  4. I love the shine of your words here, Susan: so in tune with the image! And I just read your blog’s tagline: that’s brilliant 🤣

    1. I didn’t intentionally make that reference. You have an interesting viewpoint. Time… past, present, and future are all sublime as they all have beauty to behold. (Especially because of our perception of them because that’s all we have. I guess, people who cannot find beauty in each experience might believe others, who do, might be inclined to think we’re delusional? 😉 )

  5. Lovely poem! It is interesting how we mark the past, so that an object can recall an era, and then glory in the present, look forward to the future.

Tell me something good...
