Legacy

From the far horizon comes a call,
To meet the lilting song of yesterday,
How far away to the sunset I ask?
No one answers to my dismay.
Silent images whirl on by,
Like a kite flying without string.
I look at my feet, they disappear
Afraid what my rootlessness may bring.
Stars are such non committal things,
They flicker like whimsical bees.
My hive’s empty, the drones have flown,
A naked tree, shorn of it leaves.

The Legacy

The Legacy short poem

There is far too much evil in this long misused world, too much force-fed fear. Too many bent and broken lives adrift on a torrent of tears. Too many innocent children being brainwashed in too many crowded halls. Pointless graffiti

Legacy

Legacy short poem

This dawn, the legacy of nights before, Breaks from horizons of the distant past, In land so faraway, on stranger shore, Now gone, but not mementos that still last; Find no memorials proudly hewn in stones, Nor citadels to champion
