Wine as red as stained glass
is lifted up & tilted back
touch wood like thunder
having given up grace
thread across wrists & palms
spent vessels returning to the heart
Fingertips suffused with pulse
lift to lightning's loveliness

Says the suggester: Bluebleakembers' poem "The Elements" is an understated pairing of two simple images that quietly abound in meaning and beauty. Unique phrases give immediate pleasure. A careful re-reading of this will help the reader to better comprehend that pleasure and appreciate its layers of meaning.
