Eulogy (reposted from 10/2012)



                                                        

Eulogy
By
Lisa A.Williams


We won’t be lived
like some
forgotten morning
whose sunrise
was missed
                                                                       by the heavy
weighing world
of now,
said the muses
to Father Sky. 

To feel timeless,
like an evening
strewn with stars-
not the fallen-
but those
those that rise,
lighting the shadows
where truth hides,
as the flow of words
carves into slated indifference,
softening the sharp edges
 of the  armor
 we have worn
in the age old war
we have waged
within ourselves.

  1. This is moving Lisa. That second stanza has so much wrapped up in it. I love:
    'To feel timeless,
    like an evening
    strewn with stars'
    and
    'the flow of words
    carves into slated indifference,'
    and your ending. Great writing.

  2. Lots to think about here. I would have chosen as favorite lines the ones Poetry Laundry above chose.
