Poem - Testament of Origins

The poem “Testament of Origins” began with the first line and a thought about the shadows of depression. The poetic end result instead considers tradition and religion.


Testament of Origins

Consider the ruins that still stand
testimony to craftsmanship
of the labors that came before
by the builders now long gone

with one stone upon the next
scattering low from the high
with the latter fall short
of past phantoms forgot by most

still the testament of origins
invokes the present to construct
these small altars desiring more
while the deity is still a ghost

whispered echoes against low walls
the only remnant that’s still found
with the rest tossed to the ground
stated artistry in the remains.
