The street seems narrower, and the trees have grown..

Black Diamond Night (a coal miner’s cemetery)
Where the ebony, we call “NIGHT”,

A smile appeared
Silently, I sat by,
To listen to the sounds of the world,
Of all the voices that touched me most,
Were those caught in the angelic wind.

A Tulip Grows Under An Evergreen - Inspired By The Poets At PoetrySoup

Like Ice --- THE WALTZ

Smattered with barely visible
Scatterings of drifted...
Will You Tie My Shoes When I Grow Old

As a young boy
Sitting in a pew
The winter darkness pressing down
Candlelight waves from hidden drafts
Shadows danced on the walls
