Dance Between the granite stones Of the dead Long ago last breaths do part Memories seeping in dirt Black birds and magpies Lace and knots Lingering thoughts Swaying too and fro Insane Dancing On top of the dead Lover is all but gone Butterflies shown That life flies on As shadows rest Upon ones breast

Another dark one but in its own right, so beautiful. Love the last part especially, as shadows rest upon one's breast!!

Arthur, the first thing I thought when I saw the image is that is me, and then the words spoke to me, and then I see Richard and Jan had the same feeling, it could be me, it really could, a lot of your poetry just speaks to my soul, like you are writing just for me, beautiful, 7 ~

Wow the imagery is so so beautiful yet so sad - for some reason this makes me think of Broken Wings - I wonder if she inspired the poem - 7 and faves:-) hugs Jan xx
