Poetry Tuesday: Bared Bones

Bared Bones

 

Grave bones dropping dust,

Crossed at the old master’s feet.

Creaking and bleating their lonely cries.

Left with unrest in their defeat.

 

Dry bone, marrow turned to stone,

Tossed at the blind king’s throne,

No One left at the hearth,

No Sons to take them home.

 

Cold bones, wrapped in parchment flesh,

Shuddering in the darkness, in suspense.

Not a memory of theirs remains.

Yet, still these ones draw breath.

 

Hot bones bathed in red,

Upon the soaked bloody ground, abandoned.

No tomb for them but where they fall,

In a field so far from home.

Mid-week non-maddess

Despite taking a day to recover from my Monday ordeal (well, not really an ordeal, more like a lengthy minor inconvenience), I don’t have much to offer today, save for a ¬†picture and a poem. Also, I have to share that I will be sequestering myself away for the next week to week and a half, in order to finish the final round of revisions on my thesis. Yes, it’s true, I can see the light getting brighter. It’s my hope that once this round of revisions are complete, I will be moving forward to the defence and submission phases, which would mean that by the end of April, if all goes well, I will have a formal MA behind my name.

City Night- 2012 M. Negrych

It is a starlit sky

To which I recount my deepest woes.

Distant and infinite,

It renders my problems to specks of Dust.

The arms which here do not embrace me,

Are filled with the light of galaxies.

Compared to the vast vacuum,

I am but a breath of time.

Night gives way to dawn,

The fire which warms the earth.

Like dew left on the grass,

My body evaporated as it always has.

M.
