stars hidden brilliance

time silently disappears

intervallic blips

The water kettle whistles it’s readiness from the other room

Paper, pencils, pens, and erasers strewn around notepad on the desk in front of me

Birds are still singing outside in the bright sun of this morning

And the clock ticks on……

Still trying to collect thoughts

0430

 

Hear familiar pattern

 of birdcalls

in the trees outside  

Soon

smell of sunrise

 uninterrupted

the dew

still on the green blades of grass

reminders of a night

still distant

taste of the cool breeze

through an opened window

feel of a new day

just dawning

Mishigami(Great Water)

 

Green and Blue

Grand swells of the lake, such a deceptive beauty 

How many mysteries do your waters hold?

 

Giving no quarter

How many a skilled mariner’s vessel adorn thine murky bottom?

Price paid in full for braving her storms and squalls

Expecting

Only to receive

in

Full return

How…What

was

Once given

Circle completed

Parade

 

Of

Angel’s

Clipped wings

Lost Lives

Flights interrupted

Terminated

by

Blind rage

Violence and weaponry

Reasons unknown

Coward’s bullets

Ringing out into

Unsuspecting

Unknowing

Crowds

of Innocent

People

Children

Mothers

Fathers

Brothers

Sisters

Aunts

Uncles

 

Do We Ever Learn?

Mother’s Day

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , , , on May 13, 2013 by lengesinski

Mother’s Day

 

Of the  better days and times past

The many occasions to look into your eyes

And find a zeal, spark, determination, and spunk

Your words and actions, never lacking determination or purpose

 

But today replaced with a prone, lost, and frightened figure

Chasing through countless rooms and fogged corridors

Not sure of where they are, or when having arrived there

Spaces and places where the stolen memories used to reside

 

Mobility and strength gone from limbs

Neither mind or body spared

Scarring of brain a harsh reality

A disease that spares no person

 

I’ll Leave with a Touch to Your Arm, and a Smile

And the Warmest Greeting that I can Muster

 

Happy Mother’s Day
