Sunset

wallpapernono.com


I lower the tea bag,
a chamomile-orange,
in the hot water…
The sun’s slowly sinking
in the black sea…

We descend in unknown,
into acrid basement
of consciousness,
where old spirit dwells,
awaiting us for merci

on the edge of life,
sewing the seam
behind the needle
we blueprinted our path

recovering after encounters,
walk thru quarantines
of forgiveness -
face dramatic farce…


The sun’s slowly sinking
in the black sea…
I lower the tea bag,
a chamomile-orange,
in the hot water…

  7. This is well crafted. I like this stanza:

    on the edge of life,

    sewing the seam

    behind the needle

    we blueprinted our path

  9. Every week, there is one poem that draws me back ... this is the one for me this week ... the image of the teabag lowering into a black sea is powerful ... your third stanza makes me wonder, 'really ?' ... oh, this is a good one, humbird!
