He thinks she might know
Her love waits upon rocky beach
For reason unseen standing there
Alone before they meet

Fall Again

Posted in Image Poetry, Poetry Reading with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2010 by dustus

It’s because we fall again
After summer’s glow
Awakens feelings in time
You know

Resistance cannot understand
Veins like maps on leaves and hands
Folded, covered by the land
Awaiting autumn, life felt grand
So much love I cannot stand

Decomposing soil states
Absorbing matter after breaks
In all glory seldom late
Perhaps an early heated space

Taking this moment
Fate peaks in stead
Fall again
To be human

Cherished gifts float peacefully brief
Nature rains confetti streams
From under earth soon harvesting
Growth through cold air

Care for a Reading?
Happy One Shot Poetry Wednesday!

Much More Than Might

Posted in Blog, Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 26, 2010 by dustus

Dare I ask?
Unmask my mind
Which you have read
And found fault lines

Caring shared
Uncertain why
Depression lingers
Holds back time

Cloudcover stretch
Harboring blue skies
Flashflooding brainstorms
Tide rose from sunshine

Knowing matters
Scared of heights
Holding hands
While taking flight

Anything possible
Limits turn right
As if called by a spirit
Much more than might
