Wet remains...

Wet remains...

A Poem by Candle in the wind

For a contest using the 10 words which revived my muse...


She treads lightly

Fathoming the layered darkness

Streaked by flashes of lightening

Crackling mangled branches

Wet surroundings

No stirring of life

To dispel deathly stillness

No cloak to shield the shiver

As she drags the remains

Of the woman within

This is absolutely beautiful...the way you enveloped the words to form such a profound and meaningful poem! You have such a splendid gift (I always have known that.) Most poems using 10 words for a contest come out forced or out of sorts but this is not the case at all here! I wish you the very best in the contest with your expressive poem. I'm saving this to favorites as I can relate to the deeper meaning here regarding the revival of a muse!

Candle in the wind

Calcutta, India

Flickering and blazing,not yet blown out in the wind... the flame has to sustain itself when the rains set in... Beyond norms and overrated sanity " We look before and after And pine for what i.. more..
