Mag 41 Almost 4 am...


Inspiration picture below:

Photo by Tess Kincaid

Lying paralysed
on the
wooden floor
staring
at the
clock...

 world
literally
upside
down...

Almost 4 am

Tears pooling
in ears
and
splashing
beneath
like
a
bucket
of
cold water...

Allowing
 time,
situations,
to slip
away
 dissolving
dignity...

ignoring
inner
wisdom
indicates
idle
indecision
indicating
immaturity

Clarity
comes
like
thundering hooves
on
cobblestone streets

not
distant
echos
of fading
intelligence

Don't...
please...
wait...
observe..
listen.. 

Learn
the
lesson.

Such a wise Magpie ... each stanza chock full of elegantly offered advice.

Been there before. Lessons are hard to learn. Clarity can come at the oddest hour. I like how this was written! :)

A real 4 a.m lament in such short, incisive, one word lines. Amazing how a single
word
can be
so
completely
packed
with meaning.

But the words would be so much easier to read, and more pleasing to look at, if they were't strung out down the page! It really makes for a typographical disaster to a printer...

Tears pooling in ears. Such redolence.

Amazing when the ideas and realizations may hit, be it the eleventh hour... or later, like four AM. I do hate those middle of the road trips.
