Vanished Art: This Face

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

In a world
full of
temporary things
you are
a perpetual
Sanober Khan

This face
has been effaced.
Only temporary, 
she swam on a 
Construction Fence
about a decade ago.
Never meant to endure,
she looks at you,
saved by street photography.
I remember meeting her.
The world was different and
so was I.

For it is up to you and me
to take solace
in nostalgia's arms
and our ability
to create
the everlasting
fleeting moments.
        Sanober Khan

One clear moment,
one of trance
One missed step,
one perfect dance
One missed shot,
one and only chance
Life is all...but
one fleeting glance.
        Sanober Khan 


Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

It's wonderful that you were able to save that mural by photographing it. I suspect it is now just a memory even though it was such a beautiful mural. Glad you photographed it when it was beautiful.

I like the turtle images you found. I love the sea turtles in Hawaii, especially in Kona on the Big Island.
