The remains of a saga unseen

Spread the love

The rough-hewn bits of her exhausted dreams are evident;
but what were they?
To be held?
To be left alone? To have things change?
She has tasted molten honey for a reasonβ€”
the scent of bigotry is enough to send chills down
anyone’s spine.
It would take time for cold grey to bleed in and delude us
into thinking otherwise;
her lips, still moist continue to defy departing springtime.

  3. The illustration you’ve chosen is a stark and in-your-face (no pun intended) one that is, to me, shocking.
    And then these powerful lines
    “She has tasted molten honey for a reasonβ€”
    the scent of bigotry is enough to send chills down
    anyone’s spine.”
    What a powerful piece!

  4. I got a little lost in the middle of the piece, as to focus and point of view. For the loss of springtime is the advent of summer to me. But after a second read, I thought about Spring being the blossoming of the girl, and it became more cohesive.

  5. into thinking otherwise;
    her lips, still moist continue
    to defy departing springtime.

    How we abhor to abandon the greenery of Spring! An agony sustaining for a year, imagine that!

  6. What was versus what you thought it could be versus what is and knowing what somethings will be. The loss of spring’s youthful innocence to first acknowledgement in the early summer heat of adulthood.
