Every breath is a fragile bird, feathered closer to the sky


For that is all we are assured,
uncertain as a summer shiver:
a life abundant, full, but whirled –
for that is all we are assured.
Even the moon mourns heaven’s curl,
unquiet as a dark sky sliver.
For that is all we are assured,
uncertain as a summer shiver.

..
Prompted by Poetic Bloomings. I’ve just learned that a dear poetic friend, Viv Blake, died last night, suddenly. We are all in shock, and heartbroken. Rest in peace, beautiful poetic soul.

  3. When I saw the title, I knew that this would be about Viv. The news seems to have sapped my creative energy. This is just perfect. Life is so fragile…I may need to pick up on that theme, too.

    Lovely lovely lovely. I didn’t know Viv, but if this is in honor of her, I’m sure she would be honored.
