Shards of a Dream

The porcelain couple
Slips from my fingers,
Bride and groom
Tumbling end over end,
Hurtling at full speed
Toward chaotic disintegration
On the hardwood floor.
In the bride’s shattered smile
Lies subtle symbolism
That I notice
And he never will.

Oh my. Such starting information in that shattered bride and groom. So often this is the case. One half the couple without a clue of what is going on. Lots of symbolism and words for thought. Wonderful poem.

A strong poem here. Of the three of yours I read this morning, this is my favorite.

Yeah, it's always there, but so many don;t bother, or want, to look.

Buddah Moskowitz said...

Quite a few great details packed in to this. Well done indeed.
