An Impossible Place

impossible-places09

I sat at the edge of the world

Where rain turns to gold

And clouds were dreams

Filled with power and glory

But everywhere is silent

No one awakes

No one stirs

In the distant expanse

Half-remembered things

Strange sounds rushing through the air

Songs of birds

And the cry of autumn

For in the violet thunder

Reflected in lanterns

Ripples vermillion shadows

Through chasms of emptiness

And chambers of rust.

Dawns a calm, still morning

And darkness slowly dies away.

    absolutely beautiful section in this alan….
    the end is sigh worthy as well…when dawn breaks
    and the light reigns….

    What a peaceful place you have created with your words, Alan. I like the sight and sound details you have included & the darkness dying away at the end of your poem.

    Great ending Alan! One can feel the emptiness of the night without fulfillment to advance into a similar empty morning devoid of feelings! Great write!
