I Played A New Song

I Played A New Song short poem

Photo by Haifeez

I played a new sound
between strings held in tension
untaught fingers
creating magic with the ear
I liked the sound of me
unchained melody
tiptoeing between
the rhythm of my beating heart
I hum a song
hardly sung before
words in silence
making perfect sense
tapping my feet
to the beat of the drops of water
on the rooftop
I jump on my feet
and sway to the wind
dance with the gale
and weep with the rain
I sing in harmony
in the present.
I carry on on the road ahead
on my greatest trip
a journey to myself.
Hello me.

Swan Song

The toppled gravestones, I still count the heads. I will go with your swan song, the bond erupts. You were always sitting under the bougainvillea, waiting for the swallow. The next door summer arrives; Why did you say, it was

New Sod

New Sod short poem

This day of sixty fruitful weeks shadow pristine relics of bundled keepsakes adorned in obsolete gazettes of passing snow storms, puppy training and next door’s junk mail. Transition logs re-call six states, five military orders, four duty stations, six rusted
