The Warrior

The Warrior prose poem

Photo by hans s


I am a warrior,

fighting the battles

of life’s challenges,

tripping over the cracks

on the sidewalks,

drinking cold coffee,

listening to sad songs,

working on taxes,

calling in borderline sick,

and driving the combative zone

of rush-hour traffic,

what seems so important now

will eventually become faded

pictures found in a family album

whose dusty covers are a reminder

that warriors are not immortal.

The Moonlight Warrior

The Moonlight Warrior short poem

Darkness shrouds the dying day, turning everything still but the shadows, growing they are now the undead, gliding towards altars for their daily prey. The silence is just a blindfold, the night but an illusion, things unheard best left unsaid,
