TTO ( / Washington State)

~~*~~alive? ~~*~~

Filled with the deep wine
Of my existance
I embrace my vegetation.
Growing aimlessly silent
Towering over the depths of despondency.
Unaccustomed to the sparrows dignity
There sweet chorus sung
In the early morn of my re-awakening
Just outside of my window of pain.
Going nowhere and yet somewhere...
My mind gleans the sacred places-
Corners kept secret and put away
For special moments:
When the aloness deafens
When the silence despairs
When only Roses will do!
To the point i am breaking
Splinters-they are everywhere.
Crashing, now my wine glass
It smashes the marbled floor.
Shards of my past cutting, splitting, bleeding.
I pick up all of my shattered yesterdays-
Neatly i tuck them away in my Thyme Drawer.
It is a place for the recipes
Of my entire life
That i can no longer ignore!

And hopefully not in real life, stirring up their pots of MEAN and SPITE!

This is a tremendous piece of vivid writing. I see this clearly. OUCH...! I pricked my toe on that glass. You got any Witch Hazel? Alcohol? Well done, Theodora.
Theodora, I think to many of us have forgotten how to cook. I really loved the use of the thyme, and the referral to life, s reciepe. Very nice read, now you have reminded me that I have some cooking to do 'Keep on inking the Pages' Poison
