I tire of this word


Snow white rose rage it sparks

My blushing petals combat to last forever

Afterlife shines through their tips

Morning dew to sunrise tears

Give my life meaning

Reduce me to memory

Reduce me to the potent essence

Of whom I am

My aggravated quill is a

Little too old to hold onto ink much longer

I pass into legend.

  1. Eternal really hold a pack but it doesn’t when it is abused in the wrong settings. I love the description of the snow white rose. We don’t think of that often times. The reference to the quill being too old and not being able to hold ink can be relatable – when you’re not as well as you are before. Keep it up! Another great piece!

  2. That was beautiful Jaya. “Reduce me to memory, Reduce me to the potent essence Of whom I am”… I read these wonderful lines as someone coming to terms and at peace with their own mortality. And by the way, your quill’s still fresh and flowing with poetic creativity I’ve seen only in a select few. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Beautifully written, as always, Jaya.

    I have to say, there are some days when I feel like I’m “Little too old to hold onto ink much longer”!

  4. Beautiful words once again, you are truly talented! I love that you can take away something from this, as well as it taking on different meanings. Fabulous!

  5. I had to look up luminary to check my understanding and both meanings, depending on which one you choose, shine new light on your words (no pun intended). Love this, Jaya, you have such a wonderful way with words!
