breach

A Breeze of Memory

A graveyard of dead trees

Fallen leaves of vast red and orange seas

Squirrels scurry before winter strikes

As children play while others pass on bikes

 

harmony of the trees an the wind come together and sing

As a bird chirps then stops to clean it's wing

Children shrieking and screaming as they play

Angry armies of cars roar past, then fly away

 

Memories start of when I was a kid

Only broken away by time an what it did

Sitting still only in question

Of who I am and to what is my impression

 

I laughed . . . I played here

I was happy unknown of fear

But then reality again breaks memory's connection

Only to be lost again, still unknown of my reflection

Into the Breach, Bird Nest, Hear The Sea

Folder: 
*Short Poems

 


INTO THE BREACH

Into the breach..
near the rocky beach
the seed of birch
the seed of beech
and the hardstoned
seed of peach
*
BIRD NEST

A row of centenarian pines ax-felled

Birdeggs smash upon the pavement.

The abandoned
birdnest rolled away..

*

 

HEAR THE SEA

As she hears
the confessions
of all rivers
those on the shore
hear the sea..
accepting all
she calls no thing
heresy
