Summer Supplication



Melt away,
   the saddness of the dawn
  with hilltops swept,
         in supple grace
       of sunlight's smile.
          bring
   springtime-summer warmth
             to this
         withered, wilted soul.
           breeze away
    the frozen melancholy
      which grips tightly
   in the crevices
         of me.
  dispel the pall
      of winter-gone,
   ~a nightmare never-ending~
           and free the
               chilling ache
        of icy thoughts
            in d  i
                   ss   a
                         ray

    Balm the turbulent turmoil
       chattering in my mind,
       ~the churning of the past~
          shine on my heart
            allowing me the
                     strength
            to free myself
              from the chains which bind me
                  in a season of my pain.



.

"With every turn
Comes a new frame of mind
If I could frame my mind,
Where would it hang?"

Now this is impeccable work.  I am in awe in the reading of this.  A true work of art.  Know that I share your season of pain, my friend.  "~a nightmare never-ending~" Indeed.

The way you write your pain my friend. It is stunning. I too relate to the season and this speaks to me. Another excellent piece!

This flowed so well I had to read it twice ...

Many great moments here -- a few of my favs:

the frozen melancholy
      which grips tightly
   in the crevices
         of me.


(though I wouldn't have used "grips, personally)

and

Balm the turbulent turmoil
       chattering in my mind,
       ~the churning of the past~


Great stuff here, Chris ... but to be honest, I am praying that your cleansing ends soon and that your pen gets the chance to sing happier tunes ...

Hugs ...

 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

"Balm the turbulent turmoil
       chattering in my mind"

Balm, indeed...what a wonderfully descriptive word.  Paints a painful and clear picture.  Seasons come and go, m'friend...this too shall pass.

Hugs


 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

"...And there's this burning, like there's always been, I've never been so alone and I've never been so alive..." (name that tune!!??)

With the dawning of spring, I hope your soul breaks free.
Your poems are always works of art, Christopher~

Pain truly is a season, and I hadn't thought of it in that way. If seasons have purposes, and they do, then perhaps through  your poem I can find some purpose for my own pain, and you can for yours.

Christopher~
Sweetheart ... this is captivating.
You write beautiful melancholy ...
but I hope it begins to clear for you soon.

Love you.
