>soul collector we write poems #26 collection

>Little jars on a shelf,
high and out of reach
You place souls inside
Crystal walls
Sealed tightly, so they can’t escape

A beautiful array of colours
Purple, blue and gold
Hand carved with intricate designs
A monument created with everyone,
you’ve ever known

Every day you dust them off
And put them back so carefully
Avoiding that they touch each other
High and out of reach
Little jars on a shelf

  1. >I think you have written the dark aspect of Viv's friendship poem.

  2. >I haven't read Viv's poem yet but I agree about the "dark" assessment by Barb…it frightens and yet intrigues me to think of souls in jars.-Nicole

  4. >'soul collector' – what a fascinating take on the prompt.

  5. >Viv,Process notes:Think of those who use other people to their advantage. Only paying mind to them when they need something. I think there are plenty of them in this world. I have had the misfortune of meeting a few. I think they are what we call "sociopaths". I agree it is quite disturbing.Pamela
