A New Page – Poem

The First Page by Nick Kenrick, Flickr cc

 

Days flutter pass

like the wind blown pages of a book

to rest on one page

which you decorate with

happiness,

glorious art the colors of heaven

drawn with joy, love, future

 

until a rush of air blows hostile

rips the edge from the seam

to a page of scribbled

pain,

stiff lines of anguish, questioning grief

shades of light and dark

swirled into murky gray.

 

The breeze of life wafts pages

slowly,

build to a fanning pace

past blurs of memory,

landing on a blank canvas,

another first page,

ready for you.
