Christmas is coming Packages are wrapped finely But lost in the mail!
The bird’s encircled Turkey did not stand a chance Who gets the wishbone?
Bones feeling achy Face shines with perspiration I need orange juice
Palms raised to the sky With her face kissed by the sun She greets the new day
Lazing about the Day, it’s slow, it’s cozy, it’s Fun. Sundays are…nice?
It’s my companion Behind me, following my Steps down the pathway
Where did I leave it? Did a winged beast swoop down and Tighten its talons?
A fervent plea for Grace in a time of sadness Breaks her frozen heart
Bubbles float just un- derneath the facade, the tension breaks the still surface
Steep and press the grounds Swirl a splash of two percent Drink until it’s gone
Arms wrapped around the Thick limbs of verdant arbors Two chestnut eyes sleep
Dive into the depths Of unknown mystery and Let go your cold dread
The edges have blurred, Your image gone dark, the light Fades with the last breath
To be pulled so far– Stretched thin, the breaking point is Nearer than before
A gentle hum of His wings and toss of pollen Brings colors alive
A phantom bug crawls Across my skin, the itch was Simply a loose hair
Its luminescence Made the night sky a curtain of darkest velvet
What is there to learn When it seems an unwitting Fool tightens the reins?
The fire has gone out The well has run dry, no more Do the words flow
Getting your feet on The floor, and passing through doors Is enough today
I rise with the dawn My face moves mechanically Is this my new smile?
Golden colors fall From boughs overhead and flu- tter with the chill wind
The little voice in Her head muttered softly, “It cannot be undone.”
A gentle breeze sent The leaf aflutter, spinning Through the twilight sky
Into the distance I stared in search of a face I knew once before
Ever elusive It slips through her grasp and Sinks below the dark waves
The weight of her thoughts Drove her to seek the comfort Of darkest stillness
A sugar frosted Face and coffee-colored eyes Velvet ears so soft
The small girl child dreamt Of flight through ink-stained starry Nights and perfumed hills
His gleeful laughter Rang like an alarm in my Head like bursts of fire
Suckerpunched and raw I lie collapsed on the ground Can you hear my cry?
Thou shall choke on dread Fear cannot be swallowed whole Death comes for us all
Salty drops of dew Cling to her eyelashes, be- Fore falling away
The smell of perfume Lilac it was, danced on the air Her essence constant
The light is gone now Feeling low and sullen is This all there is left?
What delectable Morsels are these, sweet and charred A shirt button pops!
Lying in a cool Room, curtains drawn, fan whirring Sleep comes swiftly sweet
It’s easy to sit And not bother with much at All, but that’s no fun
The body feels drugged Cannot wake up from this dream What happened to me?
His sigh betrayed his Apathy and ultimate Yearning to be free
Where were you when it Happened, a burst of light touched Down and smote the earth
The sea was calm and Yet, something stirred within Unsettling old fears
Soles beat the pavement Gusts of heat rise from gutters Moving to and from
Nothing seems to go According to plan. Why do Things blow up and fail?
A dash of color A soft wet kiss on the cheek Rainbow prisms fall
The hard plastic chair creaked under his weight–who would find him?
Her tone was steady Her eyes were dark and searching Could this be the end?
The birds are too loud Excitable voices sound Like simpering fools
Hey, friends! August has come and gone and September is here. Yep, I’m good at stating the obvious, haha! August was a hectic month for me, and unfortunately, I only worked through one book. Sure, my goal is to read one book a month. But secretly, (now not so secret) I like to read between … Continue reading August’s Books: A Month in Review
Rays sparkled on the Rolling waves and kissed the shore, Sandy, wet and light
Finger pointed, he Said, ‘duck.’ I turned to see a Bird instead was hit
