A Pondering Poet

At early dawn

I came to be...

with pen in hand

and a loving dream...

Echoing Resolve


____________________________


Easy river run
down vast beauty light
in morning dawn
crest before my eyes

For autumn rain has gone
sparking light of silver grace
now lay peaceful strokes
on hillside of new day

Each thought still remain
in splashed hues of poetic verse
a quenching bath of love
upon soft sky of birth

A Seed In The Wind

~


Years lost, the barren floor

a thousand poppies, shall live no more

through twilight's calm, a storm raged on


of flickering fire, before the dawn



Wither o' heights of careless breath

the evil wind, will give no rest

so burn my orange fire, burn of death

soon rebirth, shall find a nest

until that day, I stand subdued

where painted skies,

my only muse...

    ................Me!! I can't see... I rage against the wind... Nobody hears me... a rain so deep no one dares to understand.... a rain that cut my soul in half.... Two piece that will never entwine or feel as one. I feel, my eternity has no end...............
