She has written herself off
or so she says
watching youth inherit the mantle
she stares at her own flaccid chest
in unforgiving morning sun
and tries to convince herself to gently let go
light pouring in through the bay window
creating a halo effect in surround
she is bathed in unexpected warmth
her pores absorbing hungrily
that urging intensity, a happy blindness
as if the world paused in its toil
to tap her on the shoulder and whisper
it’s not near over yet girl
go out, gather your arms full

Painstakingly woven craft. The photo does justice to the intriguing imagery and the poem works a wonderful linguistic treat. ❤
I think of a verse from September Song;
“Oh, it’s a long, long time from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time for the waiting game” [Songwriters: Anderson Maxwell / Weill Kurt]

TheFeatheredSleep – A reminder
“it’s not near over yet girl” If anything, it’s only just begun! Beautiful and inspiring, Beauty!! <3
A rare positive! I try! Thank you dearling xo
I know that song very well and it’s apropos. Very much what I was thinking when I wrote it xo Thank you my friend
Dearest Smita, thank you so much xo
You’re welcome. I’m not surprised that you had that song somewhere in mind.
I love that you thrust the word “flaccid” out there, which is so often associated with male deficiency. I’m glad to read this carpe diem today; it has been a miserable one for me and I needed a reminder to rise above! Bisous ♡
I feel every. single. word. in this lovely piece. It’s as if you have delved into my heart and mind and painted my thoughts. Thank you for sharing.
It’s never over. Surprise haunts misery, and can manifest on awakening, or a warm bath, a sunset or chatting with a stranger. Keep going x

thank you dearling rabbit girl
ha ha ha you ALWAYS say the most provoking things that make me want to have a 3 hour conversation with you afterward! If either of us had the energy, right? I’m glad I could do this for you today as I know how some days that is all we have to get through to the next. Wishing only good things your way my talented, talented, talented bright light friend.
