Thanking Stars (Flash 55)

Posted in Flash Fiction, One Stop Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2010 by dustus

Lily held a leftover summer sparkler before her face. Together, enclasped hands sway strolling lakeside. Life renewed. She touched the thumbnail band aide signaling turns from concussion.

Could barely remember myself—only her—powdery sweet mixing with conditioned hair, scratched skin. Enlightened in arms, my solitary thought after hours’ oblivion stood thanking stars we made it alive.

Depression’s Last Curse

The Torch

Posted in Image Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 20, 2010 by dustus

Divided by distant land
Bold beacon raised fire
Handle sparkling water
Desire reaching higher

Into fair morning
Vintage glowing sky
Breathing aware
Most subtle glare
Cooling mist
Calming air

As I stand in awe
Click a photo for all
Nothing like being
Thought pressing pause

The torch of light
Soon handing over noon
Thinking there is more to life
Searching through forgotten truth
