Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

Heavens bells remain unrung earthly sleepers

dreams were sung by angels raining down,

the autumns wounded shaking hand was bared

by wishing well falling waters, the crown

of winters vanishing reflection was

Sought by angels waiting
For canticles,

Bones of ice, feathers of light
And they paused

The flight of the bird winter,

Song of solstice rang with

Bells- autumn would tell  stories as it held

The rope, how the mother earth had fallen,

Its grasping populace auctioned and sold

Reflections of paradise from
Two way

Mirrors in dreams that are veiled in caches.

The title and poem are well-matched. They complement each other pleasingly.

It hits me when I get to "bones of ice, feathers of light" and makes me think of those Parisian catacombs. That inference, whether or not appropriate, lends itself to other complex associations--light/"reflections," etc.--which stay with me till the end of the poem. Nice work!
