Hanging There - Poem by Heather Burns

Hanging there
suspended in time

waiting

attached to a golden
thread

Its' beginning to stretch
getting taut

snap!

it breaks release

    That break is a release. It is not pleasant to be in stretched taut state for long. Thank you for a beautiful poem with economy of words. (Report) Reply
