Ice people

the sweetness that was once wheat pollen that blew in the wind is no longer here to stay and the light that guides the path no longer shines the way as time freezes over the world is locked in a season of death the finch sings its last song as the sad flute takes its breath the chimes dances to the rhythm of the whispering wind and each whisper carried can slice through silence.... paper thin the scrap heap of mortal memories ends with human misery and the damage inflicted by a cold heart leaves no trace of ancestry the lines are severed by guilt and despair the good seeds are the children of the kingdom but the bad seeds are the tares

    Seems to echo with that sadness that tugs at the heart John. The amazing descriptions are a feast for the mind and the last line a precious truth. PS Your visits are always so special and I thank you. Hugs, Elizabeth

    A Biblical the finch singing its last song as the sad flute takes its breath. Best to you. Keep writing...or rather....keep posting your talent! Gwendolen

    "each whisper carried can slice through silence." this is writing at the highest level, nestled cozy, peroxide bubbling within the wound. Healing. I had a strong feeling you would relate, if not enjoy "Open Sores"... Keep spilling your pain upon pages my friend!
