It’s sort of like

It’s sort of like

A Poem by Stella Armour








Looking out through web crazed windows,

crystal chandeliers have turned to glass.


 

The light is dimmed,

there are no cracks to shine through;

and the wind is stilled with

no morning dew

 upon the grass.


 

Time hangs as in old reflections

caught up in a dream catchers net.


 

Uncombed thoughts

tangle without freedom,

and muted songs weep

 behind their music

of regret.


 

Dawn cannot awaken from her slumber

 ever again turning night into day.


 

 As sea and sky merge

 at the horizon night stars

  eclipse into space.


   A brighter, new beyondness

 surely now will

 find its way.

This year has been a bad one in many ways for many people, and I can't see it getting any better! It has been calculated (by an independent watchdog) that Liz Truss's proposed energy price cap will help the rich more than the poor! A lot of hardship is in store for many, many families this winter! Your poem brings such things to mind, in these dark and worrying times! An impressive write, Stella!

You are so very welcome :)
Your beautiful lines Stella show quite a gloomy outlook and the way things are at the moment your poem reflects what we have to look forward to. This is going to be a real winter of discontent. Hardship that we have not known before. God help the poor.

You're welcome my friend.
What I get from this one is that the past can sometimes eclipse the hope that things will get better. This somberness pervades the poem until the last couplet, which indicates that hope has not died. In other words, as Mr. Churchill might have put it, never give up.
