Inert

as colour leaches from the world

diluting swirled in nearby stream

under layers of grey reflection

a heart lies inert from a wayward dream

 

she revelled first with the promise of spring

danced under tsubaki blossoms bright

then watched the solitary seagull soar

on many a sand etched summer night

 

now let her nestle with the rotting leaves

the dank decay cool refreshing

her beating slows to raindrop time

pulse weakened

ever

diminishing

    1. Hey Ben, thank you for reaching out with such a question. I derive most of my inspiration during quiet moments in nature. I reflect on relationships that have ended – whether my choice or the other person ๐Ÿ˜Œ Can be such a sad time right?

      2. Your welcome Ben! I was interested at your mention of โ€œfrequencyโ€ as in my job I used equipment with frequencies of 3-20MHz. Are you an engineer perhaps?

      3. Hi Diana :),

        No, I’m not an engineer. I am a lawyer ๐Ÿ™‚
        You know, I am raised in Christian family,but for faith I always needed more. It’s a professional deformation to ask for proof of everything. I am on the path of enlightenment. I am sure for now, that we are energy beings, energy which vibrate with certain frequency .
        And you are dealing with frequency, that could be an explanation for your creativity ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you

      4. Hey Ben! I find your energy comments fascinating and most probably correct. It’s the reason we connect with certain people and not others. Thank you for your providing me with some mental stimulation this afternoon. ๐Ÿ™‚
