Exalted Tumbling



Exalted Tumbling



From the hand, up the arm,

words creep upon a page.

She, whose face is void of expression.


Having left nothing to a part of the all,

except an artificially devised

fountain of forms,

of memories and a series of

exalted ideas which today do not ring true.


As the final stroke of a clock sounds,

and her golden flame burns out,

feel now the silence.


Nothing worth saving,

legacy beyond honor.



Linda Imbler
