Mutant 750, #29 “The Dream”

“The Dream”

I dreamt I touched the mother and her son;

her Pieta so warm that we were one.

Impassioned, knew her thoughts grieved for her child

as empathy pervades my flight, awhile.

That pity lives within her marble breast

drives me to sympathy, profound and cast

cold gloom upon my wing`ed dream. At last,

I flew into such region we could share

there our sorrows,

*wing banded,

with despair.

* (to mark (a bird) with a wing band for identification)

    The rich symbolism keeps calling me to re-read this. I’ll be back for more.

    The labeling (the plastic/metal band attached to the bird’s wing) for “identification purposes” seems inhumane, yet is something Man has done to nature and himself…the poet is not sure where she is going with this, which is often the case with me (smile).

    Another beautiful piece, Jackie. I love the layers and the powerful emotion this evokes.
