539

Updated on February 6, 2017

warm lightning
incredible substances
sarcastic speeds
tried numbers
inspiring kings
fallen predecessors
risked life
disregarded love
found fantasy
danced in the snow
compared suffering
considered mystery
a pure virtuoso
a lost angel
faded whispers
transported shadows
defended humanity
internalized loyalty
approached sacrilege
desigend moments
accepted aversion
tunneled by splendor
into real memory
finally grieved
what corroded
in the box

      Numbers high and low, odd and even, added and subtracted, multiplied and divided all.make the world we live. A poem that examines life a little closer. Thank you for sharing.

      Thank you for taking your valued time to read 539, yes the numbers are akin to the various thoughts & imagery in the poem.....sarcastic speeds, tried numbers......every day needs are based on numbers, time, schedules, commerce, self-image...etc rearranging the numbers in different mathematical equations can lead to interesting discovery.

      Best Regards

      Lots of things to think about, each giving us a different angle. Is there a significance in 539? Maybe just random numbers, akin to the varied thoughts?

      Interesting, challenging poetry. Well done.

      I love how each line shows a slice of life, and the way that each slice is ordered. Very intelligent an thoughtful poem)

      I don't know if the number you have titled your poem means "lucky" or code talk for something. But I know I would love a word title. It gives me a better idea, context or just a better feel what the poem may be about. Just saying....
