MAGPIE...Prompt #145

 
 
         

                                                      RED CHAIR


THANK YOU Tess, for Magpie Tales


PASSAGEWAY

Half demolished,
the house of early days.
Windows,
shapes without glass,

every breath,
freed from the walls,
now part of the wind.

All I feared
were simply tales,
old wives whistling.

Days of first dreams
now have
the weight of silk, fraying.
Chairs splinter into fossils, 
specters work.

Timid memories
float from my mind.
All phantoms left behind,
asleep in Samsara.

I pick up a key
to swift passage.

every breath,
freed from the walls,
now part of the wind...love that bit...i wonder if they are tearing down monuments to their past...that is the feel i get...and moving on...
