Imagine Him in an Hourglass


Knowledge welcomes reflection. . .

like reviving hourglass grains once reversed―

the top becomes the bottom, the bottom, the top.

The glass space opens as the sand pours,

leaving emptiness in its previous existence.

Electricity forms from friction as it withdraws

from openness into tightness,

bumping and slipping, yet still traveling.

Each orb is a metaphoric planet,

an energy factory, silver in its own light.

And I’m listening for your voice,

when it plays back in my ears like radio static.

Your time pressed against the glass

trying to escape the machine.

I’m looking for you,

where I last tried to record your smile

and add it to catalogs of memory,

where you have escaped the artful edits

of my painting you back to tangible―

recollections turned oil on canvas.

Your name coming back as a pronoun,

“he” may have been someone to me once.

               I missed this poem for some reason............. me being me I guess.............. Bravo Princess, bravo. This one paints a picture of both artful and sorrowful remembrance as told by a Queen or Governess of a past love.................. Has a magnetic vibe to it with a nice methodical flow............... simplistic nature gives way to complex thought................... Sort or a retro Poe meets Holmes. Herein lies your artistic ability @tlhopkinson ................. To turn simple words into meaningful poetry. I really like this one.............

Write on @tlhopkinson ................... write on
