To heal I must rise on the wings of solace,
But with broken feathers,
I see only dirt on the ground.
Leaden and useless, I am nothing.
And yet, as I caress the earth,
I find I can clear a path…

Wow short and sweet.. I get the feeling there was more you wanted to say?
I really like it

No, that was it – I wanted to leave the reader with a thought… I’m glad you liked what there was though.

Simple and image-ful (if that’s a word, and if not, I just made it up)
A lot of poetry goes the epic route. And I’ve found I like the ones that encapsulate an idea in a lot less space.

This was partially influenced by our discussions on the short story format – framing ideas and letting the reader fill in the gaps for themselves…

Evocative and touching, nicely done TJ.

Thanks, Gareth. I appreciate you taking the time to read it.

Love the shift in emotion from despair to optimism, especially for a short poem like this.

Thank you, Marianne. I was trying for a lift at the end…

That was very good, TJ.

Well, now we know that Elite: Dangerous can compete with AAA titles: any self-respecting game release has to have its own controversy and ours follows Frontier’s announcement that E: D will be online only. No internet, no game.
