The Threshold

Photo provided for Magpie Tales by Tess Kincaid

Shelved
Sword piercing the flesh
Dis-ease removed
Rather it hangs handsomely
It and I,
Mutually protected by our shield
Packed away 
Parkas and other seasonal oddities
Three quarters before it is viewed again

A sleep renewal
Life ascends in emerald waves
Comfort
Physical pain dissipates

Arise in carefree splendor
Pink polish with matching lips
Daffodils, crocus and magnolias
Glowing good vibes permeates every cell
A light shines bright
Deep within and
The surrounding realm
All is well

Many moons will rise and fall before
It is called to arms again
I thank the heavens for its repose
And the journey beyond
Its welcomed threshold

it was like the sword and shield were inside a closet, once used yet now stowed away so it can't be seen; a time to pass before it can be called into action, if needed then..

Here's My Magpie

I feel this could be about winning the fight against an illness and coming out the other side of it. Really good magpie.

... arise in carefree splendor, all is well ... I love those words.

As others have said, this could apply well to a warrior's weapons/shield or to a person recovering from illness.

I think most of us yearn for those times when all is well.

Sometimes it feels like there are far too few times when all is well...this is a lovely poem, I like the use of the sword and the pink polish for imagery.

Powerful ending... depth, mystique, alluring as the Daffodils, crocus and magnolias...

Well done.

I love this. And so timely, too, since today I'm cleaning out the back door coat area, putting them away until next winter.
