Guiding Hands Initially Falter

Guiding Hands Initially Falter

A Poem by Different Wings

An ode to inspiration

Guiding hands initially falter
then soon begin to retake shape
gliding over angry facets
sensually triggered points

Red wine satin folds and flowers
fingerprints of blue and blonde
rolling cautiously with style
mostly paraphrasing verse

Shaking pair of palm trees comfort
syllables of burning sleep
chance upon a burden bearing
just fulfilling tranquil wake

Crying truth with still tradition
restless then are covenants
edgy ovals spark such fierceness
crimson bark spreads spiderlike

Magnets light upon the framework
born of caverns fraught with swans
dominoes directly hailing
mark the planet's brethren

Tea of longing tipped auspicious
murky tunnels on and on
trafficking in purpose dwindling
sending salt to shameful stones

Instances of brick laid walkways
abruptly sung by ghosts at dawn
clear cut thievery runs even
fields of soap in righteousness

Patterns shuffled thrice with glamour
building mountains like a fox
carefully induced through laughter
mystery just nearly set

Now ashes slide down palaces
wings have ended in the fall
claiming their immortal instincts
gilded hands no longer fail
