Magpie Tales 162: Symbol














resurrection(s)


every symbol 
symbolic, from 

          storm to meal, 
          each garden stake 

a prop for 
          daily bread (grind) 
preparation notwithstanding; 

I - no - all denizens of
          these trappings 
          leave creation 
to the ages, 

in mounds 
of discard.

  7. Excellent capture:

    "I - no - all denizens of
    these trappings
    leave creation
    to the ages,

    in mounds
    of discard."
