Destruction as Creation

on April 3, 2013

Talk about some beautiful words and imagery. I decided to reword it and create something new with the phrases. This was a lot of fun to play with.

Heavenly slant of light,
Teach it anything, despair.
When it comes, there’s a certain scar
Sent us of the air.

The landscape listens, hurt it gives us,
None may hold their breath.
We can find no shadows,
But internal difference.

On winter afternoons,
When it goes, like the weight
There’s a certain, ‘t is like the distance
Of cathedral tunes.

An imperial affliction
Where the meanings are.
‘Tis the seal, that oppresses
On the look of death.

    Caitlin, I like how you used so much of Dickinson’s poem in your own arrangement. I especially like the passage, An imperial affliction, Where the meanings are.”
