My solace in the chaos

Spread the love

Crimson is color of woe
which adorns my
mold that is shaped
by the bitter
caress of wind
and water
Why is it that the
world no longer
sees pain as pain–

I am fragments of love
scattered into the
horizon, to hold me
is to search for
compassion in your
soul–

Mysterious this night
weaves its way into
my heart
as overhead rose
full moon a shade
of dusty rose
inquiring are you
solace, my solace
in the

~Chaos~

the in solace my
solace you are
inquiring
rose dusty
of shade a moon  
full rose overhead as
heart my
into way its
weaves night
this
Mysterious

–soul your in
compassion for
search to is
me hold to      
horizon 
the into
scattered
love of
fragments am I

–pain as pain
sees longer no
world the that
it is Why
water and wind of
caress bitter the
by shaped is
that mold
my adorns which
woe of color is
Crimson

    I never thought of crimson being the color of woe before I read your poem, but why not? Any color associated with horrific or depressing events becomes a color of woe.

  2. Old Egg says:

    The sadness or woe does turn itself inside out in ones mind as you fight to understand the loss you experience. I do know that love does hurt when it flees away Sanaa!

    Beautifully written ! Solace in chaos – lovely.
    Especially loved these lines :
    “I am fragments of love
    scattered into the
    horizon, to hold me
    is to search for
    compassion in your
    soul– ”
    It’s so true – we must have love and understanding within and then we can understand it outside.

    I think you are very brave to attempt the palindrome! So far my efforts have not resulted in anything I could use. But I have been thinking of using a central, unrepeated pivot line – and here you have successfully done just that!

    Sigh… Such a powerful and poignant statement! 💙

    Gosh this is breathtaking!

    There is such a terrible sadness, mixed with a sense of longing, in that first question. Why is it indeed? Will the world ever see pain as what it is, again–ever-changing, building and shattering…
