Old Street Lamp Light--By Russell Sivey--United States

Old Street Lamp Light

Rose-like glow, sophisticated in its light
At night the pleasant piece of lamp grows intrigue
All possible aspects brings a wondrous sight
It doesn’t allow any bit of fatigue
The old street lamp has a dim glow throughout it
Brings a light unlike any that’s about it
The universe seems to curve around its pose
Nothing’s as powerful as this lamp in rose

  1. Russell, the old street light is a wonderful metaphor to use as a definition of life and your poem also shares a certain sadness but the inspiration is unending! It is wonderful to read you here on Whispers! Can't wait to read much more, my friend! God bless! Sheri /

  2. Russel, I like your definition of this street light
    I sit sometimes and get lost in translation starring
    at these. Welcome! Mary
