Memory

Contemplation skims
glassy surface
peers and sees
in limpid depths
fingerlings darting
in and out
the algae-furred
wreckage

This poem was written in response to the One Shoot Sunday challenge at One Stop Poetry.

Blessed

After the curtain has tattered after the floor is rot after the plaster has blistered and all the windows are shot after the seats are vacant hauled away to the dump after the cabinet's ravished script is a sodden lump still the tree, river-rooted flourishes center-stage leafy and bountifully fruited into a ripe old age
