The Path #27 Poem a Day

Recommended Posts

Tinker

The Path

Discordant storms erupt. The path goes dark
while whipping wind and smashing rain complain
and push the day to night, the blackness stark.

The force of creation collects its cost
and all the universe joins the cyclical flow
while plunged in gloom where rants an unseen show.
The earth is purged, the putrid air is washed.

From recalled shadows cast above and below
disjointed thoughts intrude and wander lost.
Perception stumbles, blinded, spun and tossed
and latent dreams turn labored, gray and low.

In darkness chaos tricks the shaded brain
that strains to see the dawn of nature's spark
illuminate the straightened path's domain.

Excellent, but I most especially loved the last stanza. Very nice. I admire your 'stick-to-it-iveness'. I don't know, maybe next year. You are so close, now.

Thanks DC I wasn't sure anyone would get it.

 

 

 

Hi Tammi, Thanks, some of the daily poems I work on more than others. This one I worked on for a few days so I put up some less complicated poems for some of those days. I don't know about this poem a day thing. I committed so I am going to finish but writing a poem a day results in some poems I would not post otherwise. And I feel like I have been flooding the board and some of my poems aren't even being read or commented on. Which I get, sometimes it is just as hard to read and comment as to write a poem. So thanks for the response.
