The Tenderness Of The Sky

Standard

*

it’s the tenderness
of the sky
laying his shroud

over me
in the morning that
opens my eyes

to gratitude
glimpses of love
peeking through

as little drops left

after the rain
on the heads
of grass blades

Eyeing The Sky

Standard

*

it’s part of nature
to wait it took me
a long time to get
it to taste the truth
of such statement

beauty of flowers

starts in the cycle
the seed growing
in darkness eyeing
the sky smiling to
the breeze falling

asleep at night so
many times until
it’s fall come in
time that is a
repeat that

is patience at his best

Now I Lay Me Down…

Standard

*

it is right by the side
of the road the Cathedral
In The Pines Cemetery

as if you could just roll
off the side of the road
dead and ready to lay

where there are no fences
but some more noise to
endure or is it a reminder

when the sun hides
at sunset behind red
blood colored clouds

The Next Silence

Standard

*

I gather my thoughts
bending a little
away from the wind

that clears skies
from darkness of clouds
the air is gold

colored tiny speckles
dancing away a tip
a tap one tip more

fingers tapping with
closed eyes
a dance suspended

draw me closer
to your rhythm before
the next silence

Love is Reverence

Standard

*

I have worn shoes
covered with trails
dust sticking loud

louder than my long
path of silence I
have asked to see

the way I could tread
barefoot as in a dream
where roads aren’t

hard where people
say without speaking
love is reverence

Standard

clouds have covered the whole
day slowing down my rhythm
I walk as barefoot on carpet
placing words carefully
dozing off a bit hanging
poetic moments behind my eyes

there’s a pace you need
to let your soul reach where
there will be no more war inside
of you nor anger where you bow
kindly and poetry welcomes you

have you been to that quiet corner
in your house when you shut out
all the superficial chatter where
you are the spirit of poetry

I’ve tried to explain
how the white around
the words are so important
to me those silences I caress
on paper breaths spaces
make the poem

Thirteen Ways Of Looking At a Poem – 8

Standard

8.

some dreams are infinite it takes
but a few words to evoke those
emotions are a whole sea of waves
useless to separate them to make
some sense just a few words
can take you to sea free the page
among waves and winds
keep poetry minimal
so the reader can fly
