Repulsion & ardor

loureedraven2Precious are the elongations of memory

snipping at reality for tidbits

they hunger to define in sandwiched package

the yawn of years gone before

whether accurate or without merit

their lingering retains the outline of past

whimsical to those who know death lingers

around some foresaid door

give them no heed if baseless they expect

your devotion and belief

what we recall is not always the delight

or squalor of things past but of effort made

to put sense in formation

let it take flight and show us

why then we made no mystery

of our repulsion and our ardor

  1. Did you mean to write “tit-bits” instead of “tidbits”?
    Changes the angle of my focus.
    You write: “what we recall is not always the delight – or squalor of things past but of effort made”
    and this makes me internalize what you are saying.

    P.S. you disappeared on me. Glad to see you are back.

    1. Hello my friend Larry, I hope you are doing well! I am back to WP thank you for reading me again and noticing the ‘tit-bits’ sometimes I miss things and appreciate the heads-up! I agree, the best is when we internalize what someone is writing rather than glance at it and move on. You honor me my friend in reading me. Thank you and happy new year!
