Happy World Poetry Day, everyone. When it rains,I can smell it in my heart,Aching now,The end of an era.

We’ve been holding the gates, the rift,Watching through the lifting mist,For spirits unknown lone to rise,Scorch the Earth, sever ties;Lo! What a surprise for our eyes,To see, waiting, on the other side,Our own forms, reaching through,Amber hue and Azure Blue,Crimson scars and Golden stars,Shining true the same as ours.
On a run… a jog… a walk…(More the latter than I care to admit)Through the East Side,Saint Paul, Minnesota. I seeRusted-out autos from garage to sidewalk;Their humble, hollow half-life draws my attention fromThe Earth,The Sky,And everything else that lies between,If only for a moment. There is a green passenger vanFor the children, perhaps,Acquired with plans … Continue reading With Dreams →
