    One really can never know, I think! This poem had me coming and going and questioning!

  2. Bryan Ens says:

    An air of mystery to this. How indeed can we know what is at the back of us?

  3. vbholmes says:

    Mysterious photos, mysterious words. Intriguing.

  4. Bastet says:

    intriguing .. those photos are way cool!

    I see a lot of mystery weaved in a short piece…well done.

  6. The only hairs
    brave enough
    to leave
    me are the
    ones that cannot
    be scolded by sight of
    me.. or at least i’d dream..
    song of a bald spot not seen..;)

    Good title and fun photos and play of words here. How do we know what’s back there…

    I like how the images suit the words so very well. The underwater quality of the photos reflect the almost wavelike rhythm of the poem.

  9. There is some wonderful play with words here… The images just compliment it so well…

  10. I love this. The photographs and the poem complement each other so well. The soft and delicate lines in the pictures give the poem an extra verse. Beautiful.
