whispers



the chill in the frigid night air
casts tremors of lingering shadows
upon an ancient windowsill
where a liquescent candle’s glow dims.

peering into shattered mirrors’
silver hued jagged edges
that no longer reflect counterfeit images
a nascent paradigm unfurls in the wind.

terrifying diminutive steps are taken
in directions au courant
enabled by years of refinement
in torrid near incessant fires.

an excrescence of wisdom
has broken the weathered mold
allowing a senescent wisdom
to shimmer a phosphorescent glow.

the venerable map leading
to this transcendent destination
is not read but perceived
through intuition’s faint whisperings.

                This is very pleasing poem shared here. The chill in the frigid night air
                casts tremors of lingering shadows. An excrescence of wisdom has broken the weathered mold. Beautiful imagery fills mind with interesting sense. This mesmerizes mind really.
