Diamond

Dirt

 

Dirt

 

Flying in the wind,

A song unsung

In the tune of sand

Flowing from the hands.

 

Fluttering colors

Prism through the beads

Of sweet-salty ocean

Dripping down the eyes.

 

As the rays of heat

Char the horizon

I'm the dirt that dyes

The sunset with twilight.

          Thank you Stevie. I tend to get buried in myself.

          Life falls through our fingers if we remain sad and all we will see in the beautiful sunset is the growing darkness around us.
          But beyond sadness is light.

            The Sunrise is clear with the dirt that settles...
            Appreciate your reading.

            Ah, when your clouds of confusion clear you will reveal the landscapes of thought so beautifully created you will almost declare yourself a God. Innovative. and inspiring to say the least.

            The last stanza is enigmatic; Well the whole poem really is. Some things are left to interpretation, which I think was done on purpose! You little shrew! Haha, jokes aside - it really sets a tone well, kind of like being lost and witnessing a sad event that must happen even though we don't wish for it. I enjoyed the read, and the message I took from it.

              In the village I was born... the cattle would raise dirt while walking back to the barn after their day at the pasture and it is said that the dusk is painted dirt.
              This was the origin for the last stanza.

                That's an interesting saying. Thanks much for the clarity! If you don't mind my asking, which village did you grow up in? The saying has caught my interest and I'd like to research it if I could.
