Private and not so private,

scratching or folded
paring food, or spread over skin;
his ego has fascinations focus
in palladium tones.
Over and over
Private promises
to shapes and  suggestions;
hands speak for the body
only momentarily unattached.
                                                       (Stieglitz and O'Keeffe)

People might find it easier to visit your writing if you give us a link in your comments. Below I've pasted the link code I use, and I've filled in the URL address for this blog of yours. Find a way to copy the whole code (everything including the a> at beginning and end) to a document that you save on your desktop. Where you see the words LINK CODE, just fill in the title of your post that you're linking. Then copy the whole think and paste it into comments boxes as you go along.

And I love your take on the O'Keeffe hands!

Great pom, enigmatic and interesting.
Love these lines....
'his ego has fascinations focus
in palladium tones.'

Palladium tones? Cool!

I love this, too, Izzy. Very nice take on the photo, including both artists - photographer and photographed.

It took me a while to find your poem (sifted through the other blogs to get here).

Hands do speak for the body. That's why if you're trying to hide emotion you'd best sit on your hands or hold them behind your back. So, I obviously like your poem. Thanks.
