Titanic chains


How do I couple these titanic chains?
Any longer in a disused railroad, yard.
How do I grasp a rainbow?
By all its foundation roots,
When even now lowly flowers refuse
Too extend their tendril shoots.
Display their turquoise colours.
The colours that represent—
The heart of the spoken word:
These flowers on a mountain slope!
That once opened like spring water jets

Clear lines of communication; between …us.

How do I fix - what won’t hold any glue.
How do I hover like a predator in the sky?
With a passion too love you as you…
Would have me do…
So our turquoise has turned a deeper
Shade of blue and spiritually,
There’s no more communication; apart from—
Two angry engines in a disused railroad, yard.
Wanting to climb, in a tug of war!
The top most summits turquoise stream.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
