Glass


Glass sounds tenuous and crystalline
Fragile
Delicate
The glass is graceful as it rises up around me
An intricate web of clearest crystal
Hard as diamonds
Smooth as silk
Cool blue
Glass blown into rings
That wind around my frame
That bind me within
That cage me inside
But the cage is so pretty
Like sugar spun roses
Encases me
But glass cannot contain me
And nothing ever should
I have the wings of a bird
The heart of the ocean
The spirit of the wind
The eyes of the forest
And me?
I am wild
They try to hold me in their glass spun prisons
They try to cage me crystal spheres
But bloodied knuckles
I break free
Leave remnants scattered
Shattered
And bits of glass the sea erodes
Clouding
Smoothing
Waves carry my prison far away
And I smile
I showed them they could not cage me
Now they know.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
