  • Poetry will always emerge out of the shadows of depression, shining like a star in the scarcity of light.

Poem Commentary

One of my really grumpy days......

Untitled (4 Haiku)



Broken wine glasses

on the floor, shattered, scattered,

so unlike before.

 

The gas lamps are dead,

the light that they shed unseen,

but only the walls

 

can hear my whispers,

calling, calling to the wind,

the wind so silent,

 

so silent like me,

so angry like me in my

ceaseless flow of wrath.

JACOB, An interesting moment of weakness when all that gets to us gets shattered. Great angst revealed here.

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
