Scattered Bits


scattered bits
and broken 'in-betweens'
perplex me.
I survey myself
from some higher plane,
assured that I am something more
than all these pieces
left for you to gather.

I sip my oolong
as if it holds some ancient secret
to transform me
past the parapets
of sirens -
those sinewy sorcerers
who raise up and tear down,
laughing at my foolish carelessness
as they devour
the little that remains.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
