poetry

Still, even, despite, we

friggspinning

We spindle hope

no longer the juicy excess of youth

dripping in verdant

not quite as elastic or nimble

as our recollections of clearing

water sprinklers with one, sure-footed

catapulted Orion summon

yet, attesting stubborn wont

we remain upright and assured

this twine

that binds

our lives

in taut

and slack

measure has

journey yet before

loosening like curtains pulled slowly

to bid goodnight

we fall into softness, darkness, eternity

the stars

and energy takes us

far and wide

    This gave me reason to reflect on a few good things in life, struggles notwithstanding. Especially because of these lines:

    “catapulted Orion summon

    yet, attesting stubborn wont

    we remain upright and assured

    this twine

    that binds

    our lives

    in taut

    and slack

    measure has

    journey yet before

    loosening like curtains pulled slowly

    to bid goodnight

    we fall into softness, darkness, eternity

    the stars

    and energy takes us”

    far and wide

Tell us what you really think. We don't bite. Ok, most of us don't bite.
