Forever in a heart that beats
staccato rhythm endlessly emerges
too fast for the night skies that slip silently away
drums beat on a beach
nowhere near to here.
Eyes that see blue waters
soothing motion should settle the mind
and I remember why I came
to the peace of a sunny day spent
wandering history and ruins.
The ease of days unfold
seem ramping into a new place
and an old time and perhaps it is only fear
replacing the knowledge of all that is
but in the morning light nothing changes
and the heart keeps beating
until it doesn’t.
The weight of action within stirs like a cauldron
and the grasping of hands pulls tight
like a dog on a leash chasing squirrels
and I am pulled about and it hurts
this tightening and I long for sleep but it eludes me
like a moment of solitary thought that slipped silently in
then like a whisper was gone,
headed for tomorrow
without a map.
I sit here with this god awful heartburn, something I have not had in almost two months….waiting for an antacid to kick in and soothe….but more irritated as I’m ready for bed and I dread a reflux if I lay prone….but on a good note, got the little fraidy pup into the pool today for a much needed bath? or at least a cooling swim….I think the little idgit was trying to capsize me in my floaty craft…but I made it out with almost dry hair….Yay me 🙂 she on the other hand is a little better to look at and smell….no dirt in the bed, nope…not gonna happen. Don’t ask me what this poem is about, I just went with it….who knows…I need sleep right about now…past my bedtime 🙂 sorry no image to accompany it….I honestly don’t know what I would put except a bottle of Rolaids at this point….wish me luck it makes it stop….grrrr…
