path in stone wracks rage new
from stone they turned from toils
lethe wracks turned burnt red sail
wreaks rage from red ash black
wraiths new toils sail black seas
My second try:Remember the true past that made you
the cast shadow that made you new
true shadow. of your self desiring love
past that. your. soul shed from time
that made. self. shed into nothing. again
made. you. desiring. from nothing. what is
you. new. love. time. again. is. not
This is a bit of fun writing a square poem, explained by Sam Peralta on the deversepoets.com blog.
I decided to take the Louis Zukofsky route, though I think unsuccessfully.
The poem turns on the double meaning of wracks which can be to ruin or wreck or as a noun, a derelict ship.
