The Tattered Pages of an Open Book

Picture @ Deviant Art

the tattered pages of an open book
reveal the absence of print,
washed carefully away in the baptismal waters
at the altar of the neologistic spirit.

the patterns of watermarks
reveals the intricate network
of the regenerated soul,
amidst honey pages
that seek the nectar language
that will speak to its spirit.

the mind
resistant at first,
lies in wait
inside a protective bark
that tearful rains have not yet washed away.

to grapple with
what soon will be revealed
is not worth the struggle -
and hence,
insight is unlocked
filtering new words
filling the blank pages
of a tattered reborn book.
