Dark

Dark Forrest trees
Guard like Thor
As night falls

Frog

The wind of Thor
Drives monsoon rain
To frogs delight.

Nailed to a Cross

Have you ever hung on a cross
metaphorically
Have you ever had too many
lines on the mirror
too many labels peeled of
bottles at dawn
cones that wreak
seen monsters
come out of waves you surf
eleven in the morning

Can you relate to this
attempt to catch
my attempt to
prompt you to think
without indoctrination
without malice
with empathy
congruence and
fidelity

but

by quoting
have you ever hung on a cross

I have failed.
And He has conquered

In this sub urban crucifixion 
Of the mind
Have you found your crossroad
You know, the one where
Everything hangs in the balance
And your decision is a paradigm shift
Or is this where it ends?

The Sign - It must be

Walking down a mountain trail

barely there and ever fading

absorbing nature's beauty

far ahead I see a sign

"Oh good"' I think

"It'll tell me where I'm going,

and how far to the next lookout

or waterfall."

When I get there

I see no sign

but I wonder,

Was that a sign?

Then a bird begins to sing

like I've never heard before.

Sun Set

In my imagination
I see sets of Suns
Setting on the moonlit pond.

White Rose Sophie Scholl

It haunts me to think

that you would die for your ideals

at such a tender age

thinking you are

intellectually superior

and in many ways you were,

but Sophie,

it is such a waste to die so young

for what?


Your offspring could have

carried the flame

continued 'the white rose'

in all its purity and

ideological splendor

but you are right, off course,

even in death and thereafter

Mitt Gott kannst Du alles.

I saw the bullet

In my spotting scope
I saw a flash
All went black.

Death Stalks

On steep slopes
Ice picks break
Crow swears


Details | Uwe Stroh Poem

Ice Meth

ironically the fad
will kill
what you long for

Rests Deep

The red sun
Rests deep on the lake
