Atrium – Starry Road

 

Starry Road

Frédéric G. Martin

Blood-red mountains, purple clouds,
lava winds, pumice stones,
cliffs and screes, gecko thrones,
ochre lands, dust and gold,

and the path that leads to the Sea,
and the garden where fire flowers bloom,
and these swirls in the sands of time,
broken lines on the palm of my hand.

I give up on my dream of light.
I break the spell. I abandon Hope.
And I look for a place in the shade
to bury the bird found dead along

Starry Road.

    • Many thanks for your advice with regard to Words in the Light. Starry Road was such a moving poem that needed to be shared with others. Hope the amendments made to the post are satisfactory. If you wish I can take down. Please advise. GJ.
