Pieris

Pieris

The color yellow looks different when I look through your eyes,

As if the fields are made of emeralds decorated in butterflies,

And then I see pollen fly and descend to the wind’s singing

And embed themselves into beds’ sheets’ linen.

 

The coursing of dance mimics a river current

And I involuntarily admire your freckles and the rose of your cheeks like they’re sunbu...

You Will Never Know

Do you have questions,
Ones that could not possibly be answered?
The assurance of peace,
Robbed.
I suppose now I must find solace in the unknown,
That perhaps ignorance could be my silver lining.
It is not.
Nightmares take shape from loose ends,
The brain defaults to fear when it must assume.

Exit day, the expected day: the day to say goodbye.

A rush hour slow-slog through thin and sickly dawn.
Idiot-bright festive lights fail to sense the mood.
Mother in the back seat – quiet, watching, alone.

A red light river – a sto...

How It Should Bee...

 

    

Ssssh

Listen…

Modern world blocking the transmission?

Too much traffic? 

A world too erratic

 

Does the whispering grass 

still play a tune

Or has brick and mortar 

brought it to ruin?

 

This world is so fast!

Take me back to the past!

It makes such a din

I don't know where to begin!

 

And cars, 

bloody cars everywhere!

If I had an...
