unmade

There is one rule for The Tuesday Platform: Share

Share a poem with us.

Share some time reading poems this week.

Share your thoughts when moved to do so.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have been traveling and so missing in action. The action is good and full. Writing seems less necessary…life itself is enough…but tonight there is a window…to ponder…so i am writing for a previous prompt and for dVerse OLN

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

i am made of starlight’s last glimmer

twinkling through aeons

 

i am made of echo’s

haunting rolls of sound

 

i am made of the space

between

 

i am made of dirt

and water

and bone

 

i am made of fire

burning bright

embers

 

i am made of soul

 

and in all of this

i am

unmade

  1. “I am made.” What a great tag. We just watched GoodFellas the other night, so I’m thinking of this in gangster terms. 🙂

    These are my favorites:
    “i am made of the space
    between”
    “i am made of soul”
    “in all of this
    i am
    unmade”

  2. I love this poem, Paul, especially ‘I am made of starlight’s last glimmer /
    twinkling through aeons’ and ‘i am made of the space / between’.

  3. Speaking of unmade, my comments have been devoured by cyber-gnomes twice; damn. Let’s see..if we truly are in lesson with each lifetime, then yes, we are unmade, unfinished between birth & rebirth.

  4. Love the idea of being made and unmade…it implies it can happen over and over again. I like to think we keep the same soul and it
    has many, many manifestations 😉

  5. Your spaces gave us that which lies between. There is a kind of litany here – not a prayer but a pursuit of self in defined terms that yields in the making and also the unmaking of. Lovely.
