Poem: "The Infinity Chain"


The Infinity Chain
By: Eve Estelle

The breath of a living soul
Dances with the breath of the land;
A moment harmonic, still -
Symbiotic, though unaware
Of our interwoven ties, the stars and man.
And in the strangest way,
The abstract becomes tangible.

Nearby, upon the swaying fronds of sincerity,
Dangles an object of great rarity -
Like a wind chime that whispers,
Calling quietly to passersby -
And on a chain of gleaming silver
Sit the eyes of Infinity;
A manifestation of energy,
Of the lasting legacy of a soul.

Now let the gentle hands that find
This unalloyed necklace -
Materialized by emotions pure,
Live contently,
Under the aegis of the spirit,
And be well to endure.


Author's note: Written for Allie Taylor's Thursday's Poetry Challenge. Based on a three-word item prompt: Necklace, ferns, gale (wind). And thrown together last minute, as usual. ;) *no shame*


Thank you, Allie!

    1. Thank you, Noor! :D Oh noo! Might be because I was on break and didn't have any new posts up for a month. But I do wish Blogger had an easier way to find others' blogs.. It's a bit messy. I appreciate your sweet words! :)
