Never The Same

In response to Sadje’s WDYS prompt
What do you see #168

Never the same
always different
caught in the middle
of others statuesque beauty

Molded differently
rougher hewn
sharper edges
unfinished pockmarked surface

Unstable untied to a base
unlike they who never wobble
strongly molded together
forevermore encased as one

Untouched in their concreteness
facing war weather and time
side by side in their cemented bonds
a weed inserts itself fighting to survive

    I love how you’ve described the two statues and how you finished your remarkable poem Ami. Thanks for joining in.
