Something Preserved

    Poem Commentary

    I saw a bunny attacked by another animal.

    Something Preserved

    Something Preserved


    Something obscured, masked and drawn within

    Something withheld, something burning

    Words lost on a silent tongue

    Ancient knowing unsung

    Violent throws and actions split

    Quiet droning, waiting, unsent

    Panting, growling, the fiery dog stays

    In wait, hopeless prey knows his fate


    -Marian Jacobs

    Lovely! Your words create such vivid imagery, almost as if dreaming, or a trance, or even a nightmare. Powerful!



    Dah, Thanks for finding "Something Preserved ", which didn't get much attention. I appreciate you noticing it, as always, we resonate so much with each other's descriptions, feelings and emotions. Thanks for validating it by simply understanding it. I have been so busy lately, haven't been able to write or get on OP that much. I will be back, though, soon, please drop me a line anytime. I will be sure to stop by your page.

    i chose this one to read because you had no comments for it. i must say, it is very articulate. vivid imaging allows a sort of, "knowing the backstory". it brings out the underlying hunger of a predator and the pure helplessness of a caught prey. VERY very well written. if all the rest are as good as this one, i will definetely continue to read. thank you for the comment on "DROP"...favor returned. :D Fellow Poet, LGDisturb



    Many Thanks, for your candid comments on this one. I appreciate your response to it. I am not sure what you will think of the rest of them, but I am always interested and grateful for your perspective, to be sure.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
