The Mind’s Eye

Posted in Blogging Awards, Image Poetry, One Stop Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 7, 2010 by dustus

Stare into these mystical eyes
Motion tween the shutter finds
Amid blinks of human passerbys
Visualize an empty mind

Open third skylight
Main being reclined
Breathing swell & then subsides

Calm frights at rest
There is no better
Feeling set open
You don’t remember
Time past life
This year, September
Homesickness
Can’t last
Going on
Forever

Captive on display
Prison echos shook
Rattling chains
Spectator looks
Tranquil, tased, electric hooks
Fish bowl, space drained, peace tamed, life took

Hours our minutes
Existence fades with sleep
Becoming accustomed
Keep living this dream

Branching Out

Posted in Blog, Image Poetry, Poetry Reading, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 13, 2010 by dustus

Synaptic offshoots reaching frayed
Spreading from the roots time saved
Standing calm past wind-waved howling
Memory challenged, blue sky surrounding

Leafless, open, elements routing
Cloudless, minus any doubting
Branching out to find a way
Not thinking over
Life each day

Heaven Here?

Earth and you
Feeling true
Impressions
Reflections
Prismatic Hues

Summer’s bridge
Beauty sheer
Warm spring noon
Heaven here?

Like Statues Remind

Posted in Blog, education, Image Poetry, Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 20, 2010 by dustus

Boyish eyes a glimmer spy
Sharing memorial to a place and time…

Hearts in her hands
Respecting new life
Something perfect
No words can mind

When everything’s worth it
And you don’t need to try
Remember your feelings
Like statues remind
