*   *   *
Those words of negativity
deposit on her shoulders
like adamant particles of dust.
More and more energy
is needed to shake them off
in the very moment
when they attempt to cling ...
After years of denigration
her wings now are encrusted,
she can spread them no more.

She still remembers though
that she was meant to soar ...

And hopefully she will, in your next poem, despite the encrustation . . .

Lovely characterisation of the picture, Margherita.

That makes sense!  As much as I love the picture, I love the poem more.

Thank you, dear D., yes, there is salvation in the power of the mind to detach ... but it can be very hard work at times.

Love,

Yo dear Margherita,

Oh oh, someone's having a bad day.

She'll just have to get over it Hon.

I love it! How profoundly sad. Makes a dude want to break out his dust buster and go to work!

Such a heartfelt write from you, Margherita.

A tear jerker to be sure, however I always find some comfort in your poetry.

Hi Margherita, negativity is bad and it has more side effects than direct effects. Wishing her positive energy. Prasad

I believe, Margherita.

I believe she will again.  Just as I did when I was a little girl when I clapped for Tinkerbell, I clap and believe.

She will soar again.

Dear Margherita - this poem came as a bit of a surprise but it's a true reflection of how we can all feel sometimes.  I have recently felt like that myself but when we remember what we were meant to do, we have no option but to get up and get on with the doing.  When I was younger I used to spring up but now it takes a little longer perhaps because I think more now than I used to.  Oh, for the good old days!

Hugs

when breath it .. eat it and drink it
when its black clouds stands obstacl between us and between Sunshine whitch was shine our faces every morning
We do not have to write about anything else because we do not know except it
the happiness.. the joy.. the optimism
All words become strange as for us
vocabularies of language we ignore it
maybe we all remember that we know it oneday
but taste of our mouth at pronunciation is bitter by it
like mouth's taste when we wake after we ate sweets in the morning and forget to wash our hands.
this is the sadness

thank you margherita for your subject

I loved this piece so much. Many times I have felt this way and it is not a happy feeling. Can I come and Swiffer off your wings?
