A collaborative experiment by Tom 10 and Mark T
« on: August 26, 2015, 06:50:45 PM »

Assemblage

Such gatherings spiral into dust motes
swirling with melancholy. Death,
languidly armoured with sole intent
and smeared ambivalence, shuffled
its feet, then reached for the symbols.      
 
Dressed in pillars within woolsack
the bodies come already repaired,
with words ill-prepared. Both stack
tall or lounge in disarray, wooden gears
interlock, and the moment clears its throat.

Starlings flutter under eaves, the day
advances in waves. There are layers
woven into the broadcloth of words
within this murmuration. The tableau
breathes, suspended in its susurration.        

Trembling pennons tied to columns
halt the reach of morning. Precious
walls curtain our sharing the further
feminine trinities, liquid fate and
iconic totems - all colophons of a
creative Godís written architecture.

What fun to enter into a joint venture.  8) 8)

I just wish I understood what the pair of you were trying to say... (sigh)

Thank you for commenting, Mrs N. The title refers to both the combined effort and to a group of mourners gathering together after the death of a woman.
