To see the mighty skies through the translucence of one modest marble

Held firmly betwixt trembling fingers caked with dirt

A bottled shrine of fearful ambitions lest they recline in labyrinthine alleys of the night

Sparkle of glinting gold, that courts the startling charisma of hope…

Will it fade as fleeting dreams of impecunious lives?

Or will an epitaph be etched in ink of everlasting glory?


(Its been more than a year. Missed writing. A very happy new year to all my friends here in wonderful blogland.)

  1. 🙂 Hi D.L ~~ So nice to see you back. I hope all is fine with you.

    A nice poem here, I do believe that those ambitions should be held tightly. Many, many, will want to stiffle them for a person through discouragement.

    Resist, flee!

  2. In contrast to the beautiful sunshine of the mighty sun and the dazzled stars blessed by the peaceful moon, once again my dear, you bring forth another artistic piece of literature, to be praised by the true lovers of this marvellous field with the boundless gardens of learning… ^_^
