in the Field of Anguish











in the Field of Anguish

In the Field of Anguish a young round bellied girl-woman walks without volition
stumbling, soft bare feet tremble on damp earth, volcanic shocks surround, in
inescapable embrace, rising deep within,  a single purposed  searing spark
flares,  in a conflagration of womb filled  flame. Her hard held frozen serenity
surrenders into panicked run as all boundaries known  shimmer permeable,
surreal,  and at the precipice of crescendoed inescapable consequence fall - as
she slides through the sodden scream soaked  field of Anguish into the silent
gentle sun slanted Meadow of Bliss - sweet velvet grass cradling new life, each
sense focused in this peace stilled moment silent but for that solitary sparkled
cascading cerulean cry of fresh life born from the now forgotten 
Field of Anguish.

  3. I felt the tension, just reading this piece. Pearl, you are astonishing (and write astonishingly too) - but as Viv says, I'm all for a Meadow of Bliss, too. ☼

  7. This is powerful writing.....one feels the crescendo of pain, and then the relief of the grassy meadow and the cry of new life.
