Blur

Spectacles rest above his brow
cornea drops spot the window pane
thinly sheathed in freezing rain
cataracts blot his view.

Cornea drops spot the window pane
branches clatter against the wall
cataracts blot his view
the day blurs by in a waterfall.

Branches clatter against the wall
ice casings burst on the deck below
the day blurs by in a waterfall
window frames topped with sticky snow.

ice casings burst on the deck below
thinly sheathed in freezing rain
window frames topped with sticky snow
spectacles rest above his brow.

  1. Excellent. There’s me thinking villanelle when I notice Mr Goodman (very good man) has a greater and more accurate grasp of poetic terminology. Enjoyed the poem very much and will add the word pantoum to my vocab list to learn in 2016.
