weekly photo challenge: abandoned

No One to Rescue Words

weeklyphotochallengeabandoned …

 Specters and poets

share the same grief:

thousands of old books

gnawed by sighing worms

call out to us,

yet we have no power

to rescue fallen words.

History’s chronicles,

the ancients’ verses

weeklyphotochallengeabandoned (1)drift off the page

into oblivion,

a slimy trail

where I once heard

the breath of life.
