Spring After the Thaw

Spring After the Thaw

A Poem by rhythm&blues

I forgive you your wicked ways
although it'll not bring me slumber
my own well being is at stake

no time to waste on your reflection

I will not wallow in your betrayal
there are many sunrises to behold
dragons to be slayed aside from you,
not to mention the spring after the thaw

The spring after the thaw is so much more poetic than so many other euphemisms. I am enamored of that snippet- the dragons will still need to be slayed for they are always breathing down our necks, but that thaw- that is pure magic. It's a beautiful poem.

I don't understand the euphemism: "Spring after the thaw". Could you please clarify for me its significance? I'm curious.

"There are many sunrises to behold" is so lovely a euphemism. That line instills hope to those who read it. " dragons to be slayed aside from you"; this is so interesting to read.

dear poet... "Dragons to be slayed aside from you"
seems to be a theme in my life... however, I am thankful
for the peace and serenity of the River that runs
through our town where happiness ripples along
like a beautiful song. truly, Pat

Spring's a season of love that creates bunches of imagery in minds. Your poetry's one of 'em. It's 'bout healing & moving the past-winds & replacing it all well with another & better lit of love.

"my own well being is at stake... no time to waste on your reflection... " Favorite lines. So much depth's hidden behind your the cave of your words. Well written.

Short, sweet, and elegant.

Knowing that your life is at stake even after heeding to the voice of wisdon (FORGIVENESS), I will advise you to beware of such a friend, mate, relative, who cannot be remorseful after receiving forgiveness..... Hope this is just a poem, and has nothing slight to do with reality? Nice lines if so.

I really don't know what to say on these 'about me' pages. I'm newly divorced, have recently found poetry and loving every minute of it. I'm a bit on the shy side until you get to know me. My best .. more..
