Washed Away Clean

Washed Away Clean

A Poem by Luke L

The beautiful cleansing of the trees
As the earth quakes from up above
The chilling thoughts
Of homemade childhood rugs and blankets
As you curled up safe and warm
In awe of the storms
An ant in a sea from over head

The sky a blanket of grey with blueish hue
Somehow expansive not as claustrophic
As being overcast on a hot day
You are more in touch
The eye between your vision eyes
Opened wide with a purple gleam
You can feel the energy
Between you and the Mother

The trees shiver and drip
In colourful focus even on dull background
You can't explain how visual and audible and tactile
Everything is with mere contrast alone

You are haunted by loving ghosts
Of childhoods in the forests
When you could first see
What mother and father were closed off to
Marvelling at the power that could erase
At a whim
The life of toys you've accumulated
All gone
Washed away clean

This is so gorgeous. You did a wonderful job showing the beauty and power of mother nature. The flow was very exquisite.

Aw. A lovely painting of a child and his mother, comforted by blankets and the power of growing up. I had a sharp imagery of rain while I was reading this, soft and falling from the trees. Beautiful and clean it reads.

Great work, a powerful story of life.

Though it's about a powerful storm, it's almost surreal poetry. This one really blew me away. Thanks for sharing.

Masterful write, Luke. Really beautiful and spiritual. Nature heals but she is mercurial girl with her pleasure and her punishment.
