Poetry Break by Linda Imbler two drops of ink

Poetry Break by Linda Imbler

With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion.

~Edgar Allan Poe~


Portal of time, please open wide for me.

Ten thousand years I need, to uncover

secrets of life and what makes it precious.

We just careen down the road at breakneck speed,

never hearing over noise.

There’s so little sense, so many things, vague,

such conflicting, informational offerings.

Throw wide that door that hides meaning from us.



We sit here face-to-face

assembling Lego pieces

of a fairytale broken world,

as we talk about

the real one we live in,

more broken

than what we now build.

We’ll need more time

for our own.
