Wind drifts bear the patter of tapping
on cut panes
as I sit there
whimsy is my best friend now
who laid her gentle hands
upon the weary petals of my heart,
the blossom of youth withered; wilting
We had watched the fall of seasons
leap in unbounded joy
to the swirls of tears on amber;
caught in the golden chalice, we drank
Too caught up in the shiver of a chill
between the elusive word
in ischemic idolatry,
the difference between
a stroke and a moment
"It doesn't matter", she whispered,
as my syllables now
are forced caricatures on the horizon
is my shield held to my breast,
in that place where I would
embrace a prevaricated world
'tween the chill of white breath
on javelin ice
It really doesn't matter.....
this capricious fault,
not mine but mine,
who takes me by the hand
where my mind leads
cannot trip to follow
who is the best companion
in the haunted
white of day
as I sit
as the winds bear the patter
on cut panes
nothing matters here
save the warmth
and the unuttered word....
Author's Notes: "Whimsy" lives as a muse and a torturer, with me and within me. Luckily I found her at a time when writer's block and a few TIA's bashed me over the head and took the gray matter prisoner . We passed winter together....we now welcome spring in a much healthier fashion.
~Blessings to you~
