April 12: Economy of Words

by allisonkujiraoka

Remember petals on a wet, black bough?

Or how so much depended on the red wheelbarrow?

Word pictures from two modern fellows.

 

The weight of the human heart writ large is epic

Its grandiosity an albatross, bordering on the fanatic

But matured and distilled into concise metaphor, prophetic.
