Concrete Poem
(Exposed Aggregate)

You cut a channel through my flat heart,
straight and sure, as though it had not already been set.
Miracle worker. Perfect craftsman,
sculpting the impossible medium.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    This is incredibly stunning! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ I love the brevity of this poem- poignant and piercing straight through the heart. Thank you so much for adding your voice to the prompt, Judy ๐Ÿ˜€

    The mysterious “You” has to be spiritual; significant vibe off my image, cutting straight through the concrete and BS; thanks.
