Before the Bridges Fell #15 : A Pond Full of Stars by David L O’Nan – poetry

A Pond Full of Stars

I just watched the sun fall into a pond full of stars.
The pond I’ve watched through all seasons.
Flooded and dried. Ducks and sticks. Depressions and deaths.
Marriages, births and dances. Full blooming trees to words that would have been better left unsaid.

I’ve watched snowflakes melt into the waters from a chilled air
From the windows of a broken house forced into gravitational shaking.
Sitting in Appalachia with dreams that couldn’t manifest into reality.
The house that fed me underground spirits into otherwise effete energies.

Stars form into broken tadpoles, swimming into two moons imagined
From a reflection seen from window to window. I could be in the flight
In that air. Hovering above the waters and seeing in the ripples whatever you wanted.
More stars? More dreams? More tears? More spirits? Pushing magnetic monsters away for good?

Let me sit another night and feel my completion through a pond full of stars.
Blind and deafen out the screams stained through the years, living in the walls.
The loves and the force, the bangs and the enlightenment of separation from overbearing wind.
Cracking the foundation if I will and shall fall one day to the pond full of stars and overlook this universe.
I could finally forgive the push and the abstract dysfunctions that removed me from your breath.
