Palm Stories by Francis Conlon

Francis Conlon | April 16th, 2024 | poetry | No Comments


A season to pick categories,
Both myth and real are a choice,
Best told through the strong stories,
Revealing a view with a mystic voice.

Take a step beyond the pagan,
For a reality surpassing games,
Yet, ask the soul to reawaken,
From a dusty dig and thin remains.

Again, my life emerges restored,
A promise made, now delivered,
Ebullience an o’er-flowing reward,
More grace than from a wizard.

Once dead, now a resurrection,
A mere shroud left behind,
Again, a call for circumspection,
To hold a new soul enshrined.
