CERAMIC OR BUST – Sadje’s #WhatDoYouSee #WDYS Poetry Image Prompt #168

Eyes slanted downwards
In deep; still reflection
For fear she’d BUST the bubble
Of history surrounding her.
Heads of philosophical greats
Sculpted in stoic; ceramic silence
Set atop a concrete perch
Searching for a little of their
Wisdom & insight
Gravitas & dignity
Perhaps to carve out
Her own unique place
In the annals of time
An intellectual giant
In her own right.
Then someday
Might carve out a sculpture
Of her
To gaze silently upon passers-by
And to be gazed at in return
In hushed; reverential
And inquisitive tones

      1. It’s imperative for many societies to have such persons/women who break perennial silence of virtues you have mentioned.
        A pondering poem….may be forcing us to ponder a bit.

  1. Wow, what a beautiful and thought-provoking poem! The imagery of the ceramic heads of philosophical greats is so evocative and the concept of carving out one’s own unique place in history is something that speaks to me as a writer. I love the idea of someday being remembered and revered in the same way as those we look up to now. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of writing with us!
