Since love has been won and lost and delivered adeptly,

Recall O heart, the silence of fallen flowers.

Since love like wine glass has fallen and lies in splinters

Recall O heart, the sharp edges of this black aftermath.


Given that jubilant stars are dancing on comet platforms,
Making boisterous displays of their victory,

Recall O heart, the murmuring in dispossessed  hearts.

Given that silent stars hold their faces and contort in agony,
Recall O heart, the sermons and songs of Solomon.


Love like dry leaf is hanging on the sky’s brows;
Behind the clouds a fervent appeal for air, sunlight.

The earth watches arms-folded, head waving in disbelief.

Discharged roses bite their fingers, counting their errors.


Elsewhere the cackling laughters of eloping shadows,

Breaking walls of the deserted.

Elsewhere the cold wind crosses the abandoned

With cold arms, their sighs like the windmill of the gods.


First flowers and whispers wither at the penumbra of parting

Hearts and souls melt and freeze and melt..

Recall O heart, the stars their promises and fickleness,

Recall others their heightened hopes and distress.

Such a beautifully written Ode.  Recalling so much more than words or places one has been.

Excellent work here.  A pleasure to have read and enjoyed this today. ~Pamela

Excellent doesn't say enough. This masterpiece is worth more than my opinion could ever reveal. Absolutely breathtaking Abby! *sigh*

How heartbreaking to read the sorrow in your dark eyes >> I do hope it is just a poem ? Your words seem to fall through broken glass .. the pieces of a broken heart shattered in a million pieces... Hugs and LOve ~ She

The way you use words make it sound like the most beautiful written word ever.  The sadness is felt throughout the poem.  You write vividly and clear.  Astounding work.
