Archeology

Evolution,
not devolution,
will bring salvation.

Archeology –
the willingness
to forage
in the desert:
multi-layers
of fallout,
aftermaths,
abandonments –
unearthing
fragments,
reconstructing –
meaning,
history,
value –
brings redemption.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I like how the form of the poem gives that sense of exposing layers to reconstruct meaning. But of course now that I see the poem was revised from a previously published version, I want to know why and how. 😉

      1. Thanks, V.J. I just compared the two versions. This current one is very much a refinement, a sharpening, of the first one. I love to see the writing process at work! Thanks for letting me witness yours.
