Winter (Remove filter)

first snowflakes

first snow flakes

 

leaves are turning

red, yellow and orange

 

grass is starting

to turn brown

 

frost is waiting to bite

 

afternoon sun is low

in the southern sky

 

geese are lining up

in a big V in the blue heavens

to head south for winter food

 

squirrels are gathering

nuts each day and storing

them in their nest high in the trees

Red Granite

Red Granite

Listen closely and hear

To know what the dawn needs

 

Tired eyes and a drifting thought

You must be astronaut sat upon God’s knees

 

Closer to hear

What the colors of dawn needs

 

Poppyseed fields at the foot of a valley

The crimson of God’s teeth

Cold winter night

And on a lonely seat in a cold winter night where it all began. Yearning for what once was, but not still and never again.

Was it hope bewitching my mind. Thinking all ache has passed. Or was it true serenity that was too rare to last.

In the dark of night my mind wanders free. Seeking a relief beyond my reach.

Then the day comes and it's darker still. Though the sun shines bright, my sunrise i...

It Lies

no wintry night beats
and rattles my windowpane
like Marley's ghost

the freezing gusts, too, are a farce,
so is the unlawful snow

the Spring is just concealed
a bit short of here;
I know
buds begin swelling
though carpeted with ice
to delay

letter to spring

letter to spring / michael kwack

 

 

in a wind

there's a scent of spring

 

i've passed the winter away

in a far place alone

 

but only hours of emptiness

and got to write letters now

 

the last confessions

to me and others

 

then to meet the spring

in complete quietness

THIS AFTERNOON I REMEMBER YOU

This winter afternoon

Everything is calm

Everything is silence around me

I only listen to my thoughts

And the inevitable noise

coming from the heater.

 

I am sitting, staring at nothing

Remembering,

Thinking,

Deep wounds bleed again

Hard times come to me

Long sleepless nights

Wild parties

Expensive trips

Sad and old songs

Therapies, books, movies and...

Tango of Snowflakes

Our first snow in so many years…

Can you believe it?

See the white coat that our life wears?

Let’s just go out and live it.

I will not watch life through the keyhole

Hypnotized by the view,

When I can finally touch your soul

And tango with you.

I’ve grown deaf in the spring rain,

In the summer heat,

But now when it snows again,

I hear your heartbeat.

The snowfla...

The Gentle Birdsong Calling of Spring

it's right underneath,

brewing under my chest

this quiet whisper circling-

not spiraling downwards as 

i often tend to, but in a way a

gentle breeze swirls a handful

of leaves and they flutter away.

there's an inquisitive nature 

to it where there is somehow a

sense of magic at hand, and yet

somehow there must be a reason

to it all. a scientific process that
