Soul Soot Poetry

#poetry, #prose


ethereal love

the strength of

translucent skinned

flower pedals

paper wings

and bird bones

an intricate tapestry

a web heavy with glistening tears


from thin air spirits

bathed in

soft sighs of

a paper moon morning

and the soft sound of

underwater rain


the color dust of

butterfly wings

the shimmer swirl of

pellucid rainbow

madness in bubbles

delicate and defiant all at once


like the butterfly

are strong enough

to live without pieces of yourself

and partly torn wings

and like a bubble

your rebellious spirit

laughs at gravity

it barely considers its impossibility

of flight

~A.M. Troester, Delicate Strength (A Muse’s Aspirations)
