Pearls that Connect Us

Photo Tess Kincade
Magpie Tales


Bas relief dangles
From places too far to see
Etched in places
Too hard to forget

Eyeing those that pass
Tussles smarter words
Detached and hanging
A daunting griffin

Floating past in current
Steampunk fashion
Pearls of youth or youth seekers
Granny styled boots, goggles and beakers
Hair, caffeine addicted writers
Relaying fantastic stories
Animated and ignited

Nothing has changed
From one generation
To another
A trend to be repeated
Again and again.

...pearls of youth or youth seekers. Love that line. I'm new to poetry, wrote my first real poem today. Glad to be a part of the Magpies. Really great fun - and it is s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g my brain, that's for sure!

Lovely post... like the idea of a trend to be repeated, from places too far to see.

Much to see and ponder with your words. Sad when and if nothing really changes from one generation to another....
