Poem for Totally Optional Prompts

Totally Optional Prompts: Opposites. What happens when opposites combine?





Just Past Before

half a world past dark
when wobble
alters axis

in a crush of time
poles trade space
warm swings to cool

revelations
unwrite tomorrow
while words twist

dust to ashes
somewhere beyond
half a world past light

I'd like to be able to write poems as you do. I think the French language does not allow such "freedom."

I love the poem and the image. I have been a bit busy and not had time to come around and visit. It was refreshing to read your poems again.
