With a sigh summer citrine sky turned green 
spontaneously into existence. 
Autumn's palette adds changes and are seen
to its systematic experience.

Stars shiver in fear on the coldest night. 
Voices in the darkness look for refuge;
heaven bound birds gather in distant flight
sailing through winds dusty powdered steel rouge.

The long day is dead, voices won't let me sleep. 
Hush. Hush. The voices echo in emptiness. 
Whiff of sandalwood lost in shadows deep.
The voices know my loneliness, the nothingness.

Amber encroaches the dawning of morning fight 
through window curtains the whitest lace of light.

"Poem of the  Week"  December 2018

     The Voices Echo in Emptiness, was inspired by the lonely nights that   kept me awake with images of him and the life we had together, it would play on over and over in my mind until early morning.

You made the reader feel and understand the words dear Eve. When we ponder life, sometime we relearn pitfalls or pleasure memories. Powerful words and thoughts shared. Coyote
