A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror

"gestures in a fallout"


a rise of debris
gestures in a fallout 
created with a swing
a strike to shatter
smash and crush
pebbles scraping 
gravel spilling free
clinging dust 
bruises and cuts 
pause to breath
the loyal winds
toss about scatters
letters of hope
words etched in stone
cement rows of sorrow
beg and borrow
the weight of belief
a place of need
raises high 
and falls again
forward and back 
the click and clack 
pebbles to stones 
rubble to ash
cinders of past 
a shadows leap 
wake sandy bones
dusty faces beneath
holding dearly departed
pressing a burden
angles to gravity
the weight of a hammer

i like where you took us to explore though sad. tough place to be. burdens weighing heavy upon us. only we can get ourselves through it - one rock at a time. let that hammer fall, heavy as it may be and start breaking up the grief. time can wear down anything, even a boulder ... :)

This is Good.
Very descriptive and well written.
What I see here about life is that, "In the transformation from one form to another in life, there is always a hard time to face."
The breaking of rock forms soil or debris as you called it, but it takes a lot of processes.

I really enjoyed reading it, Terry.
And I'm glad it speaks to me.
