So falter wings in earthly graven state,
Tarred those feathers; glued by base endeavour.
Transcendence beckons still at heaven’s gate,
Lamentations lost beyond forever.
Deny the lie that floats on surface seen,
While sonar echoes muted far below.
Fowl of seas and all living in between
Cast off the nets, surfactant bubbles blow.
Puddled splashes, a permit to enjoy,
Though shallow’d pools hide relinquished ocean.
Submersion energising; to employ
Depth charge in propulsion, an explosion
To electrify Aurora’s ions.
Aerate atmosphere, egrets to lions.
Forgive my awful illustration….I don’t do photos. Any photos on my blog will most certainly have been taken by someone else. Really must learn how to take some. Hope my poem says more than my ‘photo’….just thought I had to put something in to qualify for the challenge. 😉
Alternatively, I could do what I did before and ask you to envisage the photo in your mind. Here we go. The cosmos – Hubble pic – existing in your mind while life takes you on a journey of discovery and warps your perceptions as it unfolds. Chaos ensues. But life and love and choices make for greater clarity and …..eventually…..matter becomes clearer.
Don’t really need to bother with the poem now. Bugger!
Oh here it is anyway.
I’m getting me a camera!
Birth ends waiting.
New life from death.
