Renewal


strings unbound
tendons are loose
old glue is gone and
connections dissolve

bridges burn black
to castles of ash
a bell jar of wax
winks through night's coma

memories depart
bury the plot of old dust
leave the future behind
...transformed by the dawn

A beautiful poem, full of humour and grace. A soft rhythm and full, yet delicate language capturing a transition with great skill and precision. Wonderful.

Beautiful poem. Describes a transition with a gentle humour and grace. A soft rhythm and fullness of language reveal great technical skill. Wonderful.

Moody and etheral, yet grounded. I like your take on the prompt.

Hi there......

I am taken by your poem.....the process of renewal...of letting go throughout the night reaching for the future, for dawn's renewal and starting again.

great word tumbles :)

Mary Timme said...

What a lovely word picture to go with the picture on the screen. Loved it!

Robin said...

As I read your poem I kept picturing an old guitar, slowly giving up its music and reverting back to wood and strings. Your words touched something very deep inside of me.

Christine said...

First the body, then the mind, and finally...light!

Great poem about sleep.

Forgot to say - good luck on your Nanowrimo/novel. It's nice to know other people are writing novels at the same time.

Sigh!

Lovely. It makes me think of a phoenix. So hopeful.
