Poem of the Day – Flaked Window

by paturnerlee

Flaked Window


Tinkering with locks: busting open

So you can see the light; the fracture

Enact the vision.


Steam building blossoms falling in gusts;

Busting prisons


Flowing: the veneer cracked and peeling

Feelings to savour; sublime in believing

Sleeves in pyjamas: to sleep



Breaking yellow steam rising with lemon sharp decisions

Admissions of forgiveness

Crushing wisdom

Smiling at dictum


Well that’s the way it is

He says


A story;

Life without substance


Steaming violence from the heart

To be part of a forgotten

Rotten core

A thought

Without intention
