Palimpsest Fragments

I am your palimpsest
illuminated
dragons
holding
lightning rods
________

her body
his nectar
a palimpsest
traced
with love’s mark
_________

They wrote
sounds
of power
over and over
palimpsest prayers
_________

Scratched train window
screams
passing factories
photographic
palimpsests
________

Voices slide
cut betwixt
indentations
floating out
a palimpsest
________

Urban palimpsests
bulging
columns
graphics jostle
breathing space

________

A page flutters
voices
spinning webs
untold stories
oozing 
palimpsest

________

The pavement
beneath my feet
a palimpsest
of ghostly
footsteps

Palimpsest  Fragments series appears in The Poetry Tree, Edition 2

  1. lovely! You involved me in the fragments… I especially like the final stanza:

    The pavement
    beneath my feet
    a palimpsest
    of ghostly
    footsteps

    A fabulous image and feel.
