Transient Things

Brown, leather lazy boy .........
comfort.

Worn to fit and
knitted, yellow afghan hanging 
black roosters in squares crowing ........

Wild horse winds with 
death ...riding the flying dust

Sweeping clean.
It takes.

I pull the straining rope all day
My hands calloused companions as
time whittles the soft fragrant pine.
My long fingers of decision 

Chips .........
falling away.

Red, yellow, umber burnt
caress the damp and sky
Mother's clear blue twinkles' gleam
She had no need for words 
she spoke language.

These transient things

They are so real.

Featured Review

and yet there is a space between the transiency of our human observations and the transmigration of our souls to other more adaptable paradises. That's why poets use, as a meridian of sacrifice, all the axes of memory to allow the crossing of un-related events to become power: a mothers wisdom, the fragrance of hemlocks, wild horses.

Great poems never asks use why we've been transformed only to believe that such a transformation indeed has happened......dana

A new year makes us reminisce of beloved people passed and bits of things so precious to us..dear mother and father.. friends..cherished momentos -wonderful actual and poetic collage of life here E.! Graceful words and images circle around you like a constellation of treasured memories. I miss my mother so achingly at this time. No words, no words...

It's the transient that frames the ever present... adds sparkle to what's loved but perhaps taken forgranted.. maybe. I love the picture of past gifts that still remain precious, that surround your body and heart, mind and being with the Past

'.Red, yellow, umber burnt ~ caress the damp and sky ~ Mother's clear blue twinkles' gleam ~ She had no need for words ~ She spoke language.' And, so do you, so do you.

You write so delicately in this poem, tis as if you're stroking what means the most. A beautiful read, dear friend. Smiling here, happy me. Thank you.

And glad to be..
This is so heartfelt, moving, I was thinking what You were really painting with Your words, then I saw memories floating softly in the air, I saw a little boy standing, looking at, holding to his precious little things, flying, twinkling like stardust... this poem is precious with its meaning and personal touch.

again, Happy New Year, it's a pleasure that I've met You, may the new year holds so many of wondrous gifts for You and all Your loved ones.

Got this image of you in the lazy boy. afghan sweater fitting snug, smoking a pipe, writing poetry.
Hopefully a small tipple for medicinal purposes.
It all counts to comfort.

I celebrate failing dry out January. lol
Wow, this is good. I am especially fond of these lines:

Brown, leather lazy boy .........
comfort.

Worn to fit and
knitted, yellow afghan hanging

I see that lazy boy and afghan, and they are very comforting indeed!

There is little wrong with the transient items that bring us comfort. We all have them to one extent or anther.

Wonderful poem!
