Poetry

Thank You, Jane

Reading Jane Kenyon
is my chosen
defense against
the cold wet
darkness outside
that is insidiously
sliding into
my soul
How easily she writes
of cats rolling on
sunny rugs and
poppies shouting
from far fields
and even on less
pleasant subjects
her words feel like
a healing balm
There is an ease
there, a warmth
in her flow that
becomes a cozy
cocoon – a true
testament to what
great poetry can do

  1. Hmm, now I’m intrigued about this Jane Kenyon and her poetry which must be great indeed if it’s your chosen defense 🙂 Isn’t it amazing how words, just 26 letters of the alphabet ordered and re-ordered can become a defense against the darkness or a healing balm against life’s illnesses? You wrote a lovely poem that is not just a testament to Jane Kenyon but to the art of writing itself.
