Soul Soot Poetry

#poetry, #prose

you

ethereal love

the strength of

translucent skinned

flower pedals

paper wings

and bird bones

an intricate tapestry

a web heavy with glistening tears

captured

from thin air spirits

bathed in

soft sighs of

a paper moon morning

and the soft sound of

underwater rain

you

the color dust of

butterfly wings

the shimmer swirl of

pellucid rainbow

madness in bubbles

delicate and defiant all at once

you

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)
