  • from orange to golden

    the orange light
    to a poet's pen has
    no edge in sight
    and the further he sees,
    it's easier to write;
    or, like the moon
    in tilting down, in half
    looks about to crack.
    the page before me was--
    i contend--all i knew.
    the fire from the flames
    gone out, doors closed
    and the book sits
    like something too heavy
    and my heart strains
    and lets go sadly.

    acceptance I get from this poetry. maybe age is the key to gold and maturing.

      if we don't let go, we certainly age "less gracefully". Maturity does feel like an element here; you ever feel a bit older after finishing a great book? Like you can't go back now lol. That feeling!
