MUSIC SERIES – The Little Things

This poem was inspired by Yellow by Coldplay. Think there’s a song you think I should write about? Let me know in the comments!

 

The Little Things

 

like splashing by a sunlit lake,

or sketching pictures after dawn;

like shining painted yellow cups,

or pointing out a starry night

are how the shapes of memories

are framed in mental photographs.

LOVE POEM #104 – Patience

Patience

 

is like trying to hold my breath

beneath the mountain of water

that you poured over my body

because I couldn’t simmer down.

 

Take a look at my other poem based on the Heavenly Virtues: Temperance, Humility.

FIFTY WORD STORY – New Greens

The horses trod through the plains. The grasses had withered with pestilence before being torched. The blackened path was marred with scorched rocks and ashen branches. Yet the smoke had passed, and the sky was smiling upon the broken fields. We could see new buds poking through, like leafy phoenixes.

MUSIC SERIES – Traveller

This poem was inspired by Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right by Bob Dylan. Have a song you think I should write about? Let me know in the comments!

 

Traveller

 

After the dust has caked my lungs

and the hot swallows of dry air

have scorched my swollen throat to ash,

I wonder if my doubts will flame

 

and if, after feet grow heavy,

the heat of my fires will wane

and extinguish the fortitude

that first sent me on this journey.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Spineless

He awoke spineless. It was as if the bones in his limbs had turned to mush. His fingers would flop back and forth like a rag doll, and every step mimicked a tower collapsing. Yet he walked with greed; filled with the desire to break everyone as much as him.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Sneaking

Sneaking is a favorite pastime of the shadows. They blend themselves between the shade like a streak of black paint, dematerializing until unsuspecting simpletons, as they call them, walk through their space. Then, they like to play a prank. Knocking keys, picking pockets, and catching coattails, just for a reaction.

Hey there!

I had to post this away from home today, so I don’t have my normal closing! Check my stuff out if you like it. 🙂

Cat Greetings (and Other Haikus)

Voyager

The bark slid down stream

as though it was sailing off

to a brighter shore.

 

Exhaustion

The glaze on my eyes

fades the golden hues to gray

with each grudging breath.

 

Finishing a Book

The letters trail

down into the empty space,

but I’m still spinning.

 

Addicted

My eyes pulled away

from the provocative screen,

pushed by unseen force.

 

Cat Greetings

Their black ears perk up

at the jostling of the door

and they pad closer.

FIFTY WORD STORY – A Path Diverged

It was at the fork in the road that I left them behind. They found the foliage too indistinct; too indecisive, while I thought the western road was more deserving. The autumn leaves rolled through the wind as I trod that path, and they waited for someone better to come.

MUSIC SERIES – Passing Through

Hi there! This poem was inspired by Breakdown by Jack Johnson. Let me know if there are any songs you think I should write about!

Passing Through

 

Billows of smoke blow through the trees

as the train snakes along the tracks,

and staring out the thin window

I wonder whether the return

 

will hold the quiet mysticism

as these thick, mist-laden branches

or if, after we have passed on,

the breeze will coax away the chills.

LOVE POEM #99 – Sloth

Sloth

 

Time passed and I forgot to write.

Despite the distance between us,

lifting that pen was as draining

as waking from a dream alone.

 

Read the other sins (so far): Lust, Envy, Wrath, Gluttony, Pride.
