in-dirigible


perhaps this is it,
someone's last hope
dumped overboard

washed upon shore
waiting to be found,
still learning to fly,

only so high inside,
dreaming beyond
these invisible walls, i.

quick, find a rock, break
the glass, release me
once more to dance

among the clouds until
a gentle breeze carries
me across horizon's line


artwork by tera @ olive hue designs, who commented last week that she would like to do a pic based on one of my poems...i just beat her to it by selecting one of her pictures. do drop over and pay her a visit.

As one who is stepping through bits of shards, taking wing herself, I can tell you I was able to internalize this bit of prose. Wonderful, Brian.

Be careful...when you break the glass you shatter that which has so far cradled your dream safely to the shore.

The Exception said...

Both forms of art capture hope and sorrow – desire and constraint. It is wonderful when we can put words to pictures and have them work so wonderfully together.
