Heart Tides – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

#2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge

Day 12 12.11.22

Prompt: write a future poem.

Heart Tides

As mind's empires fade
the hope of hearts rise
past dystopian disjunctions,
where it is possible to breathe,
here the future becomes real
for the first time since fear,
since the sadness of endings,
which in this moment are transformed, 
becoming an urgency of hope without
abstraction, a glimpse of tomorrow,
something new,
hyperbole restrained,
nothing regurgitated,
no longer a field of dreams,
a field of tides,
turning where 
the conversation has begun.
