MAGPIE...Prompt #127


                                                 Figure Eight/ Franz Kline/ 1952


FOR THIS WEEK'S Mag...a Pantoum..for Tess, at Magpie Tales.


CIRCLET

There's something about a crown of thorns
separated from the rose
all dread, no green days left
piercing all that's luminous.

Separated from the rose
there's nothing good about a crown of thorns
piercing all that's luminous
a clasp of barbs to pinch the skull.

There's nothing good about a crown of thorns
rests in the minds eye forever
a clasp of barbs to pinch the skull
once seen, never denied.

Rests in the mind's eye forever
all dread, no green days left
once seen, never denied
there's something about a crown of thorns.

There's nothing left on separation, each making the best of what's left.
Great pantoum, Lyn!

Linda said...

Your pantoum works so well for the iconic image of a crown of thorns, Lyn. 'All dead, no green days left.' stays with me. Your words are as powerful as the painted image by Kline. Thank you for sharing.

This has a life of its own , Lyn , very moving, may all gour Crowns of thorns become wreaths in due course, all wreaths or all thorns is no good! , the wreath , the ring of Prometheus, or Michael , who urges us all to be more ! . Thanks .

Absolutely nothing good - it draws blood and gives intense pain.

Excellent read - thank you Lyn.
