....I had a vision of a sparkling fountain....


A Wishing Well



I dreamt of you as a wishing well that dried,
not one with an old bucket and a crumbling wall,

more like that fountain that you find in Rome
but saw it empty, derelict, exposed,
losing its depth consumed with all that need of wishing,
its stone bed scorched, a wizened water snail
next to the minted comet-tail of scattered coins.

I had a vision of a sparkling fountain
rising through spray of turned up rainbows, and
of any wish unwished, for it had tempted fate.

I don't feel I understand this very well (especially the ending), but I like the imagery and the language very much indeed!

Brilliant piece of work Sharlie!
I like the metaphor, the flow, the construction and the lyrical quality of this work.
I know you have been here a long time, but I want to welcome you again to the bay from my side!
(((Hugs)))
Keep posting such brilliant stuff!

an emotional entropy - a season (poem)pictured collapsing or descending into the deepest pit of a time lapse; nothing is forgotten; memories of the past, present and future merge into the dirge and deepest well of yore stoic and compelling moving verse - this truely is of the highest order (timeless). I Really like the images you have incoporated, like when you say:

'a sparkling fountain
rising through spray of turned up rainbows'....

(a-maze-in-vision )!!!!

A priviledge to read - a blessing to find. Phenomenal...Peace-Out.
