Augur


I felt a type of way
The kind of feeling when death 
Is about to strike 
A jolt like brother & sister 
An urge like a painter's 
A pain like a poet's 
The ache of a mother 
Facing her childhood 
And children alike

"The ache of a mother
Facing her childhood
And children alike"
this is a fascinating idea...

The ache of a mother
Facing her childhood
And children alike...i know how that feels...tightly penned and hey...good seeing you again...has been a while

Oh, Anthony. This piece is pure gold. Honestly, it shakes me for it beauty. "A pain like a poet's" gives me chills for it inherent beauty. Where did that come from my man? It's shortness adds to its brilliance. Great poetry is written by great men, great write.!

Growing up and finding glory with pain. I would protect you if I could. But I send you an origami crane that stands for 1000 and it brings you blessings and courage to face time and multitudes. Carry on brave poet!

Natasha Head said...

Facing her childhood and child alike...there is an entire societal study waiting to be written on those words alone. Anthony, this is loaded with layers and avenues to chase...your intent, perhaps obvious to some, has me reeling. I looking back, I'm looking forward, I'm seeing my child coming up in this world compared to the world I knew at her age...and honestly...I'm left scared to death...that's a mighty potent little word weave there, Poet!

Each example adds another dimension to that fear they all share. Nice piece, Anthony.
