I.
Wine as red as stained glass
is lifted up & tilted back

Empty cups
touch wood like thunder
having given up grace

II.
Blue veins
thread across wrists & palms
spent vessels returning to the heart

Fingertips suffused with pulse
lift to lightning's loveliness

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-09
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. The Elements by ~bluebleakembers ( Suggested by ashellessmind and Featured by Nichrysalis )
