The details, edited

According to legend, everywhere the winged horse struck his hoof to the earth, an inspiring water spring burst forth. 


A poem is like Pegasus, which
broke loose a day after
the tamer’s first attempt,
galloped all night,
the distance to freedom
and back, with both wings
broken. I await next morning
its return, like a mother
mourning over a crucified son,
knowing that no one
will feel for us,

myrrh-edit after myrrh-edit.

Hmmm…I think I get it that the poem is sent forth for others to perhaps send it back with broken wings? Maybe also the bereaved mother who feels her work has been crucified and suffers in silence? but you lost me on the last line..(or maybe the whole poem)? 😉
