as a dirge it truly sucks

time ahead intimidates me
demands a piece of me
I turn askew
and sing a dirge silently
letting the aura slowly fade away from me

I look at my immaculate fingers
painted so meticulously,
each one ringed too
I think sadness has no place here
I can't let it rule me

I squint towards the sun
rays of light blind me
yet warmth permeates me
washes away the negatives
I am left with tranquilty

"when a new aura sets around me,
I welcome it illogically"

Does the aura change and fade? Occasionally snuffed out, only to reemerge later? Your introspection gives me cause to think this morning. I enjoyed your piece.

Yes, they are of the emotion - a good place to be sometimes.

ahhh. to acknowledge and live with sadness and not let it be overbearing.

I was living that yesterday. And much of my life, actually.

Your words, as always, invite thought and reflection. I value the depth you bring to the page.

Those auras can draw us in and captivate us until, before we know it, we are wide open again--and that is far from easy.

Splendid... I love your choice of language in this!

Thomma Lyn said...

Lovely poem, ruminating on the challenges and the lessons of time.

time ahead does demand too much sometimes. I'm reading all of these and I love how almost everyone is avoiding the actual prompt. Almost as if we had planned it--disdaining the way stars demand stuff. It's funny somehow.

"I think sadness has no place here
I can't let it rule me"

Absolutely. Beautifully put.

Strong emotions here. I have missed reading your lovely work.

Stan Ski said...

Emotional lament - and you've done that thing with the prompts again; clever.

Robin said...

Great take on the prompt. I especially like the second stanza. Who hasn't felt that way before?!

I like this - the auras changing from sadness to tranquility.

SisterJulia said...

Things rings so true for me in this, the dis-allowing and allowing of different auras based on preference in the moment.

Beautifully captured.

Dee Martin said...

I love the line - sing a dirge silently :)

Amity said...

Why welcome it illogically?

You must exude an happy aura for all the world to see!

Carlos Gesmundo said...

Such a positive perspective--let the bad aura go, let the good settle in. Lovely verse.

Good wishes.
