Shattered Statue

The winter was endless

Had thirds and fourths even

extreme cold…thaws…slush

drips to ice ponds

statue contracting and expanding with each weather change

the melt was swift from the flower bed

the Patron collapsed onto a stone

shattering in allegory

to the stigmata that claimed him in life

peering down

picking up the pieces

watch as they fall into the rubbish bin

sometimes saying good bye

or leaving one chapter to the next

you may not hold the ritual for…

but Mother Nature, Father Time

conspire to provide

the ritual you need.
