Hello everyone, so good to see you all here again, let’s get cracking!
I’ve had to take my time with NanoPoblano entry Day 21 of my found poetry marathon, as I have used another long poem as my inspiration, this time by yet another well known poet by the name of Mr T. S. Eliot.
I am linking to his poem rather than posting the whole thing below, as it is rather long spanning a few pages of A4 and therefore would be better off read over at the link provided below. There is also a fascinating analysis of the poem available too, which I will link to as well.
Finally, here is my found poem based on the incredible words of Mr Eliot, thank you for reading and hope you enjoy it 🙂

“Consumed By The End To Make A Beginning” by David Ellis
The brightest flames the heart’s reflecting
Mirror and stirs the spirit
There is no living thing in time’s bloom
That would be the same at the end
Knowing what you came for is meaning
Purpose beyond the end
Starting from anywhere
Curiosity has been the language of the living, always
The place where a story was hope and toil
Without sacrifice, we rot foundations of sanctuary
Uncertain of the horizon
Between dawn unresisting and dusk known
Familiar, yet being the cause of wonder
Between two worlds, much like each other
Enchantment offering promise of laughter, virtue, approval
Where you must move in measure, with love beyond desire
The future as well as the past begins as freedom
People of kindness we celebrate more than those who opposed them
We have taken all manner of hope, in the choice to be redeemed by love
We only live consumed by the end to make a beginning
Where we start from, any action is a step born with history
For history is now the voice of exploration
We know the place to discover the beginning
Hidden in the waves of here, now, always of complete simplicity
