Four Lines (1)

Dew drops bead morning dandelions
Her tears glisten bloodshot eyes
Fumbling thoughts through hours pass
Derailing nighttime tracks of time


I plan to post my One Stop Poetry Friday offering @ 12 am EST. This week’s poem is called “Forever Band” (photo by me from MSU campus). Hope you enjoy it!

  9. Y’know, those dew dropped dandelions could be early morning sleep in a pretty gal’s long lashes. I love the way the structure and juxtaposition of your words play with my imagination, Adam.

    powerful images in just a few short lines.

  11. Whoa, thanks to Kavita posting a link I was able to find your blog again!
    Good work with just 4 lines.

  12. Hi Cin. That was nice of Kavita. Thanks for following the link. Appreciate that and your comment. Cheers

  13. Wow. You packed a heap of feeling into four lines, Adam. The use of the dandelion in this, it being a weed, is a cool touch. This sadness that “derails nighttime tracks of time”. Ahhhhh! How human.

  14. I always appreciate how you notice the details in my lines! Thanks so much, Leslie. Have a great weekend!

    So much power in brevity. Like how the tracks of time are “nighttime”
