Rod Serling Remembered

What’s in a photograph

in reference to time

The events as portrayed

or what they call to mind


Focused on tomorrow,

the picture is lame

Its history frozen

—the future unframed

    I like the title. Rod Serling’s interests and art has always intrigued me.
    An interesting read. The poem reminds me of Serling’s “Picture Gallery” which I was lucky enough to view a while ago. I will also binge watch, from time to time, “The Twilight Zone”.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts…always welcomed and appreciated.

        You’re most welcome.

        Were you remembering Rod Serling for any particular reason?

        Came across an old Twilight Zone on cable and it took me back to the early 60's.

          I see!
          If you ever come across “Picture Gallery”, it’s worthwhile to take a peek.
