NaPoWriMo Day 30

THE END OF APRIL

New green strewn
with severed white
tongues of magnolia,
relentless advance
of the spring not taking
no for an answer.

Temporary guest, always
so reassuring & sinister,
just a drip in geologic time—
less than nothing.
Your deep thoughts
will not be dug up
with your bones, say nothing
of paper & soft tissue.

We spend half our lives
decaying, thanks
to the criminal sun.

message 4: by A.A.

A.A. Attanasio I’m touched by your comment about “Arc of the Dream,” Mark – and impressed by your perseverance in finding that title with so few mnemonic clues. Blood seems to be a motif in my fiction: “The Blood’s Horizon” came to mind from "Radix" before I remembered “Mirror in the Blood.” I certainly feel connected with the human community and liberated from a writer’s isolation by your friendly anecdote. And how uplifting for me to know my story inspired your poem. I’m glad the creative fire has passed between us!


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hey Mark, thanks for the add! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Jeannie


Hertzan Chimera as you're my friend and you're online right now, I'll say "Hello from Oxford".
