Impermanence - Poem by Martina Moriarty

Your ceremony was of a short duration?
the length..of your struggle!
'enshrined'
in the continuance of time.
The wealth of your holding-in
the grand estate of the heart is, without question
A holy dwelling!
The hasp of my soul
the keyhole
to your lovely bones...
Indefinitely.

    Quite stream of consciousness sounding. The breaking of the flow serves to slow the reader down to try and grasp what the author means...that being said, I am not sure that I know what the author means...An interesting read though. (Report) Reply

    Thank you Kay for reading and the lovely response! ! The inspiration behind the poem is a connection between Mother and Daughter...an Ice cream parlour... and a Promised Land. Martina xxx

    Thank you so much Kay for reading and your very kind response...The Inspiration behind the poem came from a dream I had about an Ice cream Parlour...and a mission I am on in my personal waking life! Martina xxx
