MAGPIE...Prompt #126


                                              Yesterday's Dreams/ Jack Vettriano


THANK YOU, Tess, for this Magpie Tales.........



PANDORA'S MEDITATION

Let's live.
Let's try life again.
I wake up at the first slap,
squint at God's Tree,
it's Eden again.

Eternity absorbs me
between
drawing in a gulp of air
and puffing out.

Breath is all I have,
the only proof that I exist.
Everything else is embellishment.
Untie the box.

A broken China doll tumbles out,
her neck embroidered by tattoos.

Love you, love you baby.
My breath is all I have.

Kathe W. said...

very unsettling-well done!

Linda said...

Oooh, here there is a desperate need for love, contrasted with a tenuous ability to breathe and an overall feeling of instability. Cleverly crafted, Lyn. I love what you did with the prompt.

Karen S. said...

Stunning writing, and breath is all this woman needs!

Lyn said...

Hi Kathe W.
Happy when that happens! Thanks so much...

Lyn said...

Hi Linda-
I think you see this one very well...thanks!

Lyn said...

Hi Karen S.-
And the only thing she can count on...thank you!

kaykuala said...

A little pressure built up, a bit chilling. The yearning for love involves 'two souls' in tandem. Only one voicing it out is no go! Wonderful write, Lyn!

Kutamun said...

The ancient Greeks called it Pneuma. Very powerful little Dakini emergimg there too , this is very magically powerful, Lyn, you have dived deep for this one, and brought something quite powerful to the world, thanks

Lyn said...

Hi kaykuala-
Indeed, trying to see eye to eye is hard to do...thank you!

Lyn said...

Hi Kutamun-
You really got it! Of course she knows that all she's got is the pneuma...her soul..all the rest is maya...and I know that all my females are dancing Dakinis, even if they don't know it yet...traversing the sky with enlightenment. Awaken!!
So thank you so much for looking at her dance.
