On Immortalizing

Strew them flowers on the streets,
Roll on them with enthused greets,
Draw her countenance on the hills,
Sculpt her on the waters in rare stills,
With every wave she will rise so high,
In silent dignity of tradition to the sky,
As every passer bye watches in awe.
Sketch her on every wall now in love
Graffiti in abstract bright and dull
Under every bridge an artists’ mall
Which connects my worlds so sooner
On every sail of an adrift schooner
Scream to every wind and wave…
It is only her and I can only strive.

  1. Love this poem.

    “Graffiti in abstract bright and dull
    Under every bridge an artistsโ€™ mall”

    These are two great lines, they really turn underpasses/bridges, that can be quite gloomy/intimidating, into something positive. ๐Ÿ™‚
