Come the days when we

reach back into seas of

pinpoint diamonds where like

globes of fire we spun through

glimmering heavens yielding

only to the pull of hearts.

Now the dew falls from our eyes

Not from  the sky, the tide pulls

outward and mountains lose

their foothold but a new sun

is rising and we are touched by

the tongue of deepening wisdom

and   burning indignation.

  1. ‘burning Indignation’…I’m reminded of that story of a homeless man begging for money and a University of Cambridge law student burning a £20 note in front of him…not sure why this popped into my mind…other than just reading your words…’burning Indignation’…

    thank you for sharing your works…I appreciate them…smiles hedy ☺️

  2. Wonderful poem. We get past the indignation with our deepening wisdom, but for many I believe the wisdom falls apart, but the indignation remains.

  3. I’m resisting the indignation.
    So much seemed to be on hold for so long…
    and now I just want to grab those things until they spin with me like a waterlogged dog shaking off an ocean…
    bounce me down mountainside stream gullies until I bruise…
    glide me in places that sparkle so beautifully, it no longer matters whether those drifting tears of phosphorescence are stars or plankton…

    and souls like yours are writing the poems that lie too deep for me to scribble.

  4. Wisdom will douse the flames of burning indignation with eye dew, then crush it with a sea of diamonds!
    Love this Holly!
    My past may beckon, but it’s the lessons learned that I take forward. I could be wrong, but this is what I see in the wisdom of your fluid words.
    Thank you! xoxo

      1. He does. So does Bolsano, and a number of others. TBH most western political leaders have failed miserably. And they keep screwing up. In France for instance. Depressing. 😩😩😩
