Am I The Missing Fragment?

Seasons change
I see water turn to ice
Then thaw in afternoon sun
No resistance

I see leaves on the ground
Toss in the wind
No resistance

I see Billowy clouds
Make way for charcoal pillows
No resistance

She breathes heavy
Grips my hand
I pry her fingers from my wrist
Feel the resistance

I can’t find the missing piece of the puzzle
Oh, my veins swell blue
It is me
I let go a little at a time “So for this prompt we are to write a Modernist/Post-Modernist Fragment poem ~by that I mean

a poem of several numbered stanzas. Each being complete in itself and having only a passing relationship to each other, if at all
a poem of disjointed images (like listening to conversation in passing, repetitively switching between radio/tv station, random images across a screen, or paintings/photos seen in a gallery)
Your poem should NOT conform to any rhyme scheme
Your poem MUST include Fragment(s) somewhere in the title”

Just a tiny fragment of my thoughts.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    That poem really grows on one, as the reader, when one realises…and one can feel that anguish/utter anxiety.

  2. letting go and learning not to resist – some nicely observed examples in each fragment Mary and the title is a fragment in itself.

    Provocative writing, Mary. It reads like glimpses of a mystery that is vast yet so close.

    Oh my heart this is poignant, I especially resonate with; “I see leaves on the ground/Toss in the wind/No resistance.”💝💝

    It’s like a mystery…leaves reader wanting more pieces to figure it out! Perhaps we need more acceptance of reality and less resistance?

    I am in the half-sleep insomniac bloom of zolpidem, but I like your work. I will return when I am once again razored out to write a ringing comment! ✌🏼❤️


  7. Insomnia seems to be of pandemic proportions, but be careful of the razor’s edge.


  8. I do love how you tied the fragments together… the pain of letting go is universal, but you made it yours.
