Restoration

I come to sit

            In the Sacred Circle.

In solitude

            I seek, I meditate,

I explore my Soul

            To eradicate

The structures within

            That seek to restrict

The path set before me.

 

In my mind’s eye I wander

       Through the past

Of vast wastelands

       To seek the old bones

That feel smooth to the touch,

       Yet, are solid as stone.

Though bleached white with time,

       They send shadowed reflection,

Like faint ripples that shimmer

       To seem silver in sand.

 

I set to the task

            To gather together

Each piece important

            To the whole.

I lay them bare before me

            Building from the beginning

To complete the circle,

            To restore the old life

To regain the new.

            For in the continuing circle

There is no end.

    I’d like to know who you are, or at least something about who you are.

    Seeing these several poems here with no author construct or any gesture to an author construct is…well, it’s strange.

    One poet to (hopefully) another, what I see here is too good to remain purely anonymous.

      Thank you for your comment and interest. I recently began posting to this blog, and wanted primarily to post my poetry here. My main blog is located here: http://yvonnesbookendings.blogspot.com/ and contains information as to who I am and what I do.

        Thank you for getting back to me with this.

        It seems to me that you should include some relevant information about yourself here to give the poetry that you leave here some context. Otherwise they’re just anonymous poems by an anonymous author, something wholly unsuited to the quality of the poems that I’ve seen here.

        It’s just a suggestion, of course, but I encourage you to take it.

    I love the melody that this poem has in rhythm. A sense of reincarnation in the last lines gained my interest. Excellent piece.

    Thank you! I actually re-wrote the last lines a couple of times before I felt I had it right.
