We can do it

Open sky, adamantine heart

Was tattered yesterday

Sinking in the grime

But we pulled ourselves up

Aggrandizing effort

The wraiths of yesterday,

Our ankles released

Can’t you see? Can’t you believe?

Don’t let them have control 

Our self serving souls

Egotistic impulse

I can do it

Awakening regeneration

Focus on the sky

Arise, make new creations

    “wraiths of yesterday”….ahh! 🙂

    I once wrote the “wraiths of passions quelled.” I always wondered if I’d overstepped and placed that odd word on too high a pedestal. It’s good to see it in another work. All is right in the world again. 💙
