Pane

A Chapter by Scott Christian
"

This is one of my favourite works. It has been published in an anthology book for webloggers.

"

She dances along a pane of glass
Wild and free
She has no set direction
Nor bonds to hold her back
She leaves a trail
behind her -- where she's been
I try to imagine her life before
A feat
                  Impossible

The sky beats a dull colour
it's grim sheen cast upon
my face
I hear the gentle rap upon my roof
The patter of countless trails
to follow
I smile -- faint, obscure
We've danced this step 
                  before

I place my finger
to follow the trail she left
I dance to her steps
jagged -- beautiful
And as she slips below the line
I stop for a moment
in mournful reflection
I slowly place my finger

upon another trail
And I think to myself
"Maybe, this time
                    she'll stay?"

This is so vivid and so intense. I can imagine everything that is going on in it. I have to say, my favorite part is the second stanza, especially this, "I hear the gentle rap upon my roof/The patter of countless trails/ to follow". It played in my head so well and it was one of those parts in a poem where you say, "Wow, he has a way with words, this is amazing." So pretty much, the only thing I can say, is that, I am a fan of this poem, and also your others.
