Muse

Word is darkness

Figures devouring each other

Love delights in break up

And becomes a poem

Poem is light

Images lapping up images

Thoughts delight in birth

And becomes a word

Posted for Carrie’s picture prompt @ The Sunday Muse #175

“Sound is sea: pattern lapping pattern… Matter delights in music, and became Bach,” the poet Ronald Johnson wrote as he contemplated matter, music and the mind. The given picture prompt and Ronald Johnson’s words triggered my poem today.

  1. Breakups are generally sad but there are beautiful and tender memories that remain and which we savor. You said it so well, Sumana, put them to poetry as keepsakes, hidden or on display.
