When Tender Notes Weep (@Onestoppoetry’s Friday Poetically)

Posted in One Stop Poetry, Poetry Reading with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2011 by dustus

When tender notes weep
Angels shriek throughout no sleep
Above shredding, cutting
8th notes erupting
She knows my love’s nothing
Truth bared beyond me

As rainfalls bleed, puddling greed
Opportunistic admittedly
Spilled guts, fallen dove
Lies lead history, I’ve had enough
Unbalanced, out touched
These sing songs of Love
Strongest than most tranquil drugs… 

Ineffectual odes to never mind
Did move me beyond, until out of time
While you are not nirvana
And I’m lost inside my mind

Perception floods life
Untangled link chains
In search of lost time
Nature flows framed

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
Inspiring
