Port of Placement

Port of Placement

A Poem by Kathleen Cavender

I wrote this after returning from a very interesting visit to London.



Nevermind the past

With its darkened moon

And days of smoke and mirror

You will melt the wax

Of its stubborn lines

When the petals fall from bloom


Not the dawn of owls

But the breath of doves

Will hear the heart of dreamers

It will see the path

Of a thousand days

Til the fire of moments come


Oceans of salt can’t change things

While your reflections tell stories

Still the wound sings sharp

There’s no wind to cool

And a stone is placed aside


But there is sweet release

Where the song will rest

On crystal seas of purpose

So let the river rise

When it calls your name

And your port of placement comes

Still the wound sings sharp'

I love this poem...It (to me) says to wait for your calling and to just go with the flow.
Very pretty, and the imagery was nice. ^^
