DAY 25-PA PROMPT-FALL-POEM 1.- The Fall

The Fall

Whispered in dappled
Days of long ago
Leaves rustled above
As long lean
Muscular legs flexed and grew
Ran within strong safe 
Boundaried solid edges
Toward a horizonless tomorrow
Here a loss, there a dimpled
Despair, an edge crumble
Until in an incomprehensible
Instant almost nothing
Remains here in the wisp
Of frightened
Filaments of fear
Wavering shaky legged in the finite
Marginalization of the unmisty
Ultimate
Final
Fall
Whispering of days long ago
Invisible to those of strong 
Legs running

  1. Pearl, some beautiful use of language in this piece. I felt like I was falling while reading.

    As for a live link, visit this site, Brenda has found a site that shows you how to do it. I am going to try it later, but I am rather dense when it comes to computers:)
