April 2016

In 2016 I participated in NaPoWriMo (or in my case GloPoWriMo) and this is my (quite delayed) poems.

There are no common theme connecting the poems, they just are.

13. Of ivory of gold

 

 

 

Knitted by my mother's hand

A blouse of ivory and gold

Is the only thing that stands

Clearly in my tortured soul

 

Made of the whitest ivory

And the purrest gold

It speaks of forgotten bravery

And damsels; young and old

 

Made at midnight

Made at noon

It shines like sunlight

And the golden moon

 

Every day for a whole year

I wore it non-stop

And my greatest fear

Was to give it up

 

So when my soul split in two

It lit up my mind

It told a story true

I long since left behind
