In the end is our beginning..

In the end is our beginning..  by Elaine Edwards

“The end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.” *

 
That handful
Those broken
These images
Glassy shards across the floor
Splinters stealing into skin.
Construct a carapace
Curl up and wait
For wings to grow
To lift above the ground
Desperately fluttering
But walls are smooth
And colours harsh
And candles bright
And dangers lie
And wings grow tired.
Jagged shards are glittering.

So find the shell of former self
And creep back in.
Curl up, close eyes,
Attach your thread
Unspin
Unspin
Unspin.

* TS Eliot
