The Nest of Imaginary Forgiveness

The Nest of Imaginary Forgiveness

A Poem by PandaPeaceful

Like a dead man laughing, 
They crumbled into the nest of forgiveness. 
For the world was dominance,
it was power and utter defiance.

But the flowers urged for an escape.
They begged until daylight came,
Until the winds headed north,
and the screams diminished.

Utopia obliged to the vanishing.
Dream by dream, heads replenished. 
Like pulling the oceans into land,
they neglected the fires.

For now, fires were ignited by the lesser,
And those who remained untouched,
Stayed beneath the rotting soil.

There's a certain release, a comfort even, when we look at all that's broken or unfair or disgusting . . . it's like a freeing exercise to face & accept that life sucks so much of the time. This is the way your message comes across to me, rather than being simply bleak, but just allowing us to let this junk go & focus on whatever little pleasures & joys exist in our lower level beneath the chaos & tragedy (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Your welcome
I found this piece of poetry, though dark as some might find it, still hopeful and enlightening - the last verse offering the flip [too, I would add, it takes a seer to look beneath the rotting soil to find its salvation]. The title at first intrigued me, and in the last, it smiled my face and sort of tickled my insides by its entendre. Great piece, dear One!

I enjoyed the read so much I found myself even thinking about it after some time and just had to come back to read it again [smile]. Great job, Panda!
