Poem of the Day – Lavender Train

Lavender train

 

A picture, a prediction; lost and found

With shards of shivering light caught in symmetry

Lots to talk about

Open and closed for a short moment

 

Sought for and stepped into

The hours of waiting

Released from restriction

 

A great time to count the numbers

One to six, shaken and tossed in tandem,

Brushed aside

Tired and wavering

Concerns and outstanding revelations

 

Escaping condemnation

Elation clearly rising

Not chastising

Prison gates held in chains

Courses, tumbling, dribbling,

Fractured shadows shimmering

Grabbing chances

 

Staid, smart and resolute

Enchantress bed is covered in dust

A must for the end of time

 

 

Punctured paper crushed and manipulated

Serrated and shredded

Fed to the governess

Who was well deserved

 

Writhe and choke

On the written evidence

Phlegm engulfed strangulation

 

Gone at last

Free from the past
