Cascade Poem 1

I come from dark places

Old books with dusty pages

My imagination filling empty spaces

 

I am the soft sighs of wise sages

The clink of keys unlocking dank cages

I come from dark places

 

I am crimson roses in black vases

Piercing stares from solemn faces

Old books with dusty pages

 

A shimmer of the Fates’ graces

I  am shards of light traveling through the ages

My imagination filling empty spaces

 

***********

I’ve finally finished my cascade poem for Amaya’s Dverse cascade poem challenge, thanks to today’s prompt from NaPoWriMo, which challenges us to write a poem about our origins, taking inspiration from Safia Elhillo’s poem, Origin Stories.
