Flashback Friday – Drowning in the City

Osaka Skyline

This is a reworking of a magnetic poetry piece I played around with back in 2019 magnetic poetry is a real hoot, give it a shot here.

Drowning in the City

The concrete is poison
devourer of forests
torturer of my soul
as oceans of poetry
fade from my eye
blaring sounds hide
nature’s heartbeat
lights of cities
drown out the sky

And yet, I recall
caramel colored flames
as fire danced
in fevered rhythms
and angels awoke
with sacred song
memory of the moment
the fire smiled
haunts me still

Til next time ~Stay Wild Moonchild ~ JP
