Beyond Yesterday

Hear I am
So far away
Perspectives, angles
Love each day

Lasting impression
Sight cleansing, golden, free
Silhouettes of ducks glide by
Sun spread over shouldering trees

Under Standing

Posted in Blog, Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 9, 2010 by dustus

Cannot sit still
Elbows switch
For once in life
Don’t care to win

Supporting palm
Glass bolstered chin
I don’t mean
What you think
Has been

Questioned
Time of life
Well, not unexpected
Less lines written
Minus invective

Smile somewhere
Over caring
Found the ground
Missed under
Standing

Dawn’s rosy fingers smooth earth
Spoken form Homeric verse
All time vision that remains
In sight ever-changing
Connecting these days

Mistaking Beauty (for week 12 Poets’ Rally)

Human beings make horrendous mistakes
Though maybe one in time becomes
Something beautifully suggestive
Impossible to be redone

As a result of last week’s rally, I wish to acknowledge The Happy Poet award and pass this one to Megz! Besides inspiring me to use the salutation “cheerios” when commenting on each others work, her use of language is amazing!  While I can’t help but be influenced by everyone I read and comment on;  when I read Megz work I think wow! this individual’s creativity with words is off the chart! In addition to the above award, I am also passing my Cross Cultures Poetry Award to her, which I feel is the award best exemplifying the spirit of the poetic blogging community.

Thank you, Jingle
Thanks Megz!
Cheerios!

Mirroring Dreams

Posted in Blog, Image Poetry, Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2010 by dustus

Elevated trains of thought
Building stacks in reflective glass
Arcade of sleek pillars standing tall
Framing curved paths and concrete walk

Bridging illusion
To all that is seen
From the other side
Mirroring dreams
