Spring – A Poem

Hey everyone! I wrote this poem a while ago for my aunt’s art opening, and as I am short on time today, I figured I’d post it!

 

Spring

 

The milky reflection of the winter scape receded

as the first strands of pinkish sunbeams for the year

broke over the mountainside, waking the robins,

and the orioles and the bluebirds, for duty,

 

like the waking calls of a mother at dawn,

ushering her tired children in for breakfast

before the long day of school. And those birds in turn

woke their siblings the bees, and the foxes;

the otters, and the bears, until the whole valley was filled

with the happy cries of birds and beasts alike.

 

Those are the kind of days that I long for when I wake,

caught somewhere between the light of fantasy

and the dirt-stained grit of reality. Days where spring

breaks into the infectious rhythms of lovemaking,

while the hate, prejudice, and torment of modern life

take a pause for the trees to breathe a sigh of fresh air.

 

But now, looking through these dusty old windows,

I realize that summer is setting in quicker than it ever has

and that this lovely spring was wasted

in the minuscule confines of an office cubicle.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Let Me Be You

Let me be you. Let me square my shoulders as you do yours, draw back my locks with the strength of your neck. Let me smile with your white teeth, kiss with your red lips, speak with your hot tongue. And let me bleed with the warmth of your heart.

MUSIC SERIES – The Bannerman

Hey there. This poem was inspired by Queen’s We Will Rock You. Oh, and make sure you go vote! 🙂

 

The Bannerman

 

The thunder of cavalry boots

roars along the cobblestone road

like the crack of rain from the clouds

as they rush to form their ranks

 

and spattered in cold blood, long dried

rises the ancient bannerman,

like a conductor with his wand

sending instruments off to play.

FIFTY WORD STORY – After Hours

Everything was blurry. It was like looking down the street through a glass of water. Each step felt like trudging through knee-deep mud, in the rain. My head was spinning, then suddenly the ground was rushing up to greet me. The darkness took me as hot blood filled my mouth.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Royalty

He was royalty; clothed in the red and gold of the dynasty his family had brought to life fifty years ago. He passed beneath the golden arched entryway, down the polished white tile floor, to the first person he spotted. He smiled at them and said, “one Big Mac, please.”

FIFTY WORD STORY – Hunting

The hunt was afoot. The whipping mix of leaves and wind wound through the air as his footsteps crunched the dirt. The trees were dense, and his sidelong glances at were cut short by gnarled roots. Suddenly, a large one snagged him and he hit the ground. The deer escaped.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Vengeance of the Herd

The thunder of hooves was behind him. They loomed, growing louder and louder like a symphony. The pack had become a whirlwind of terror when he had put a bolt through the smallest one’s neck, but instead of dispersing, they collected and came after him with a thirst for vengeance.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Rent

“…twenty, forty, sixty, eighty, eighty-five, ninety, ninety-five, and six-hundred! Looks like you get to stay here for another month,” laughed the landlord, “Ciao.” He waltzed down the line of second story apartments, dressed in slacks and a loose-but-expensive shirt, while I shut the door on my coffee stained pajama bottoms.

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. 🙂
