Loess on Paper


Dust sewn across continents
of papyrus,
seeds of a sordid tale ancient blown
onto a living scroll.

Vespine loess with a savagery long-dissipated,
all that remains evident now is a vague fertility
offensive to those with more delicate constitutions.

I have seen spirals of sand
echo the misery of the living,
gulls laughing to mock my fallible hand
while irrepressible clouds creep.

I have tasted the ocean's salt of life,
bitter with minerals
and foaming with eons of subterranean war.

I have felt the soft touch
of wind,
cradling me as it pulls me forth
from my oceanic beginning.

It is a leonine breeze
that scatters all the dust of me.

I will mix with rain
and write on the world's papyrus.

This poem speaks to me about different storms and to emerge victorious sustained by the inner strength transformed into a shield of protective peace. The poetic journey through the images is an excellent job
I hug you, @d-pend. Greetings.

I think he talks about the bad times we have in life, and the wind would represent the desire to keep fighting maybe?
