i became i

i became i

spit out of chaos
i became i
out of the pits
of hell, so dark
so deep as to make
black holes seem
freckles on the universe

spit out of chaos-
unplanned, unwanted
i became i
a rush of light,
of impudent beauty,
stunning even the gods.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.

    Yes, I’d agree with Penny. I like the imagery of the “black holes seem freckles on the universe” – that’s really great!
