NaPoWriMo – day20
Sevenling (ever-burning fire)
Ever burning fire fades, then flares within.
Black ink burns current page, curling edges.
Flames constantly wage struggle to bring light into darkness.
Cooling watery depths hide layers where life abides.
Tides creep in to steal sand from land, one grain at a time.
Flowing rhythms replenish life’s need of nurture, quenching thirst.
Contact births wisps of smoke, soft hissing sound like indrawn breath.

Notes: Often, in the past weeks, have come across the form called sevenling, but without a clear explanation. Found one today, here: http://bozone-bw.blogspot.com/2011/04/napowrimo-19-sevenling.html Thank you again, Brenda. Still a bit hesitant and would welcome any comments.
Sister was sitting in chair when I arrived today, eating lunch (almost solid food). They were packing her up to move her out of Intensive Care to a nearby room. We did a bit of joking about zipper scars. She has two more on her back, and one on each of her knees. Gives much deeper meaning to a ‘zippered up existence’. Was a bit difficult to leave and go out into raging blizzard. Spring is not winning this round.
