Arches of Sappho

 

 

Arched landscapes painted

in prismed realities.

Beauty locked in the

clutches of paralyzed time.

Frozen to infinity,

a hostage held

by primeval machine.

An eternity lost

to a faltering compass.

Though bound in chains,

tethered to a heart

ingrained in stone;

Her spirit drifts

in shifting river flow.

Capsizing between shores

of penance and rage.

A timeless tale weaving wind,

fluttering paper doll wings

as words dance

from a faded page.

Shifting time as clouds glide

entranced by the arches.

Love captive in mourning

an ending she cannot accept.
