The Power You Hold


Inspired by highs such as yours
Witnessing the determination
Only a fraction of what is adored
Time and effort, continuously shown
Surrounded by gray, however, I
See nothing, but strength
And the power you hold
Over where my dreams will go

  1. People, places and things ~ are they not the best at finding inspiration and creating the dreams that fuel us during the days of grey? The line: “And the power you hold, Over where my dreams will go…” is something that I think people must feel to not only to be alive, but to feel connected to the great things life has to offer and eventually come our way.


  2. Consider how many great cities are built on rivers or the edge of the sea. What compels people to want to live at the very edge of a continent? Not just the beauty, certainly, but something else, perhaps the risk of knowing that at any moment the waters might rise and wash it all away. Maybe the same is true of human relationships.


  3. It’s Pittsburgh, Audith! I love it. And what a wonderful poem you wrote there! I’m taking a snapshot of it, if you don’t mind. I’d like to read it a few more times.

    Okay, so…do you have a favorite building? I’ve been in the big black one.


  4. P.S. I just went over to the Professor’s blog, and now I see it (the building on the far left, you know). This is a super tribute, sure to embarrass him a bit (but then, he likes red, right??). “Determination,” “strength,” and “power” — all perfectly describe our brave and funny friend!


    • Ha! Yes, his video from yesterday is a huge give away, huh? (Cool building and a dead give away.) He’s been trying to capture a proper photo for me for a while now. I told him once he did I’d write a poem to go with it. He envies my skyline photos, I think. I believe his view is beautiful. Don’t you?! As far as him blushing? Naw. He doesn’t blush or have a heart so this won’t hurt him a bit. Trust me. His continued effort to be the best musician ever doesn’t go unnoticed. I figured this site, the location of his most recent shoot, must provide loads of inspiration for him. Tis his city. It should inspire his dreams. Thanks for reading!


  5. I love this, Audrey. ‘Tis splendid and reminds me of someone I know. Where is the photo taken, anyway? I especially like that tall building on the far left, the one with the interesting spires.
