A wish


Visit antiquehelper.com


They are like porcelain, aligned
same pose, expressions, a wave of hand
with lyre one in a graceful stand
another sits in Yoga style.

Their eyes drink sun shine from the sky
the will of fortune keeps off split
above adversity, woes’ pit
in meditation spirits fly…

Ascending to the cliff sign R.I.P.
the wind drilled/whispered in the air
a wish for a habit ‘do not fear’
trust 6th sense, let the heart to flit.

  17. This is an interesting description of the porcelain statuettes, with many pensive thoughts well explored. However, I am not getting a sense of an octave from these three quatrain, though the envelope rhyme works very well.

    . . . . in meditation spirits fly…

    and it is linked to the nysterious 6th sense:

    I'm sure you would agree
    The importance of ESP
    And always throughout history
    It has been reveared in mystery
