Her Escape


Poem Commentary

Inspired by the beautiful, peace-filling frosted window pane I see as I fall asleep. I look forward to bedtime just to be still and gaze at the sparkling window...

Her Escape


she gazes through starlight
face to the frosted pane
where a diamond studded landscape
fuses weary soul and brain

through glint and hue of tanzanite
her dreams begin to write

how shadowed tree limbs fall
to rise, upon the icy view
in sanctuary's quiet hall
marked with peace signs ~overdue

her need for stillness genuine
now scatters ash on venial sin

reposing, draped in holy light
no gloom of darkening cave
a poem of peace now flares
the flames upon her heart engrave

the fires of comfort thus ignite
embraced by the stars tonight

wonderful write dear......love this line through glint and hue of tanzanite her dreams begin to write



I think that is my fave line from this one, also. Thanks so much for coming by to read and comment!

HarverTomsson commented on Her Escape


A hint of Thanatopsis in this. The desire for peaceful dreamsleep competes with the dreamless sleep of death. For now, life wins out, but the eternal stars beckon. A great antiphonal theme between fire and frost. Human life is somewhere safely in between.

Thank you so much for your heartfelt comment, I appreciate hearing from you and hope you will find time to come by again soon. Peace...

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
