The Streaks of the Sun

The emotions build
like snow on the distant mountain peak.
 
A rumble of thunder
too obscure to register
a feather in the landscape.
 
A crack
a peeling back
wilderness in a landslide.
 
Massive walls of white
colliding with the fragile bones.
 
Tumbling freely down the hillside
I wonder.
 
Is there color in this life?
 
My breathe is stolen
inhaled crystals
burning in my chest.
 
Endless white
searing away the preconceptions
searing away the expectations.
 
I come to a stop
exhausted
worn and bruised.
 
I lay for a moment
strength
slowly seeping in.
 
I raise my face
the streaks of the sun
register the colors.
 
I stagger to my feet
I can go on
I will not accept defeat.

  1. Faerie,
    For some reason I'm not a poetry reader. I usually just ignore, but you're a friend and I wanted to read it and I have to tell you it's really wonderful.

    1. Thanks PK, I would say I am not much of a poetry writer, but sometimes the words just pop into my head. If I don't write them down they tend to just hang there, going round and round and round.

    1. Oh Terps, I do hope the sun is finally coming out and not just for me my friend. I think we could all use some sun in our lives right about now.

    1. Thanks, usually when I write poetry, it's just because the words pop into my head and I need some place to get them out. This would be the place :)
