Darkness

Darkness

Hiding in deep shadows

The darkness creeps in

Allowing me to retreat

From the rest of the world

 

My place of safety

A sanctuary when life

Becomes too much

 

I don’t fear darkness

For it is there to

Protect me until

I am ready to seek

The light

And…

Return to what is

Waiting within my

Reach

And…

Walk forward

The Nothing

In life…
there is nothing
 
But…
 
There is nothing
that only exists
in our minds
 
And…
 
The nothing that is…
The nothing that 
is always there…
Hiding in the shadows…
Creeping around corners…
Dissolving into dark recesses…
 
We know that nothing
well because to us
it is real…
it is there…
it is pain…

This was inspired by a quote from The Snow Man by Wallace Stevens:
“Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.”

Traces…

Wandering…
 
Enjoying the coolness
of early the Autumn air
on my skin…
the brilliant blue sky…
a paintbox of colors
resting on the trees
 
Along the way
I feel for 
Traces of You…
Memories…
The life we shared…
 
The warmth of sunshine
filters through leaves
Creating shadows that
Tattoo my skin
And…
Once again…
I can feel you

Moon Girl

Each night
She wanders 
not aimlessly
But…
With purpose
 
Night time is 
her Companion
The Moon her
sometimes lover
Tasting of 
night-blooming jasmine
Sweet Southern magnolias
And…
Smooth aged Kentucky Bourbon
 
This is her secret…
Her nighttime mission
Barefoot on dew soaked grass
and damp earth
 
She is grounded…
Reconnects with her spirit…
And…
The Universe…

Moon Magic

Moon Magic

A Full Moon
hangs just so high
in the sky
Mocking Me…
Laughing at Me…
Reminding Me…
 
That…
 
What we once 
had was based on
Moon Magic…
 
And…
 
That magic was 
for us individually…
 
And…
 
Together…
 
Now…
 
It mocks me…
Reminds me…
That I was
Not…
What was 
Meant…
To be…

Micropoetry

Leave a comment

Micropoetry is a twitter phenom … creating a complete poem in the

confines of 140 characters.  I have not posted any of my micropoetry, but here

are two from last night that were inspired as I walked to the barn to feed the cats 

who live there.  My thanks to my dear friend Cletis L. Stump who has continued

to mentor me and teach me along my writing journey.

Forest of Words

Forest of Words

Walking under the stars
Seeking moonlight and shadows
Listen…
What is there…
What does she hear…
 
The forest speaks
whispering to her
words she cannot
quite understand
 
Soft sounds…
A forest of words
leading her through
the Night…

Lurking

Lurking

We all see you there
Hiding in the shadows
Lurking…
Sinister…
Foreboding…
 
Not wanting to be
Seen…
Yet…
Not able to leave
 
So…
 
We ignore you
And…
Leave you there alone
in your shadows
Not acknowledging
your Presence…

Spring Death

Spring Death

You left me
in Spring
When air turned
grey and all
the flowers
Died…
 
 
Spring has become
a time of mourning
for me
Not the rebirth
and renewal 
which should be
happening
 
I barely survive…
each Spring
Becoming worse
than before
 
My life…
Grey…
Desolate…
Dust…
 
Yet…
 
Life goes on

The Dream…

The Dream…

A pale thread of
golden light 
brushed her face
 
looking outside
she saw it lighted
a path in the 
Darkness…
 
Did she dare follow?
Where could it lead?
 
She felt as though
the light was
attached to 
her soul…
her very being…
Drawing her into
the Darkness…
the unknown…
 
Her feet were not
her own…
following the 
tiny lighted path
that ended in 
a glowing meadow
 
The light dimmed…
A figure emerged…
Calling her…
Beckoning…
Safe…
Secure…
 
Finally she saw him
The old  man said,
“I have been waiting for you.”
 
And…
 
The Dream Ended…
