one more stone.

wholly lady i speak

eating air beside,

the tree whose blood of mine

grew upon.

like Medusa eyes

of stone rolled under mine,

I knew I had hid

from you all;

i could not

stir the moon-thief

in my strange dreams

who knew the gives

of i want,

turning one more stone

here is the bud.

    Mesmerizing…my eyes just hungrily glided over your words.

    Your ending makes me think of spring… with that bulb hidden under the stones poking its head up through the soil! My daffodils are four inches tall!

      Your interpretation is spot-on. I wanted to have that glimmer of light or hope at the end. 😀

        It worked very well.
        Your work is so figurative that I imagine most of the time I am way off from your thoughts. But I do like to give it a try!

        I always do enjoy reading your interpretations. I find poetry beautiful in that way; I don’t think it always has to be right in what the author intended for the most part. Only just to see how it impacts the reader… Well, that’s enough for me. 🙂

    Though we are beautifully alive this January, this poem heralds the coming of spring for me. I read it as one might read a treasured book; word by careful word, savoring the experience of turning a page or rolling over one more stone in preparation for the next silvered emotion.
    Thank you for sharing this!

    I especially like the ending of this one,
    “turning one more stone
    here is the bud.”
    It speaks to me of the continued need to actively seek and new growth to come.
