Ishaisms, Poetry


You chose the balmy ink to delineate,

a dismal, (formerly unevoked ) cry;

then appalled at the sketchy truth, did to bits separate,

the frail parchment with fingers spry.

What started in an inspired hour,

proved taxing and intricate to upkeep;

colours and lines bore uncanny power,

to disrupt, to reveal…

Cowed all the while by the staring, laved fragments asunder,

you hurriedly blotted a design – common and precarious;

then lit a fire to demolish the stochastic remnants, and smother

that death-ennobled glare of the decried and burning fumiferous.

  2. Definitely taxing to read and comprehend, but so are the stochastic remnants of the grand designs of the greater artists. I choose to watch from a distance to get the complete picture πŸ˜€
