We swallowed the moon
in dreams of sickness,
feeling the movement
as it slipped down lower
into the starving pit of emptiness
growing cold in the blue.
Sweat runs like rain on summer days
as the sun brands bodies
with the tattoo of red,
seeking relief we drifted to the edge
and held on tight
to stay above the fray.
Amongst the stars
scattered like sugar drops on black,
sprinkled to and for by the careless hand,
like unexpected words found
cold and sharp, ever bright
as it finds its mark in the darkness,
slipping away unsure,
we all fall down.
Slipping through the grains of moments
the seconds stripped of times demand,
we move through thoughts that carry knowledge
in the channel of movement
we watch and remember.
Selections of memory rise on water
and bob on waves of dreams of now,
floating deaf we hear the heartbeat
as peace gathers us close
we drown on bliss.
Chained by the hours we pull with might
to escape in the time where stars do play,
and standing below we watch and wonder
where the road or next chapter lay
as we gather words and form the stories,
tales we tell to see us through.
Unfolding forms of a minds creation
page by page we lose ourselves
in blanket forts with flashlights watch
the black and white force
of a memory unleashed.
Poetic thoughts running amok, good morning my friends and have a peaceful and blessed day. K
Working through the midnight dream,
we enter through the magic space
chasing elusive thoughts drifting by
and capturing the essence
of a different path to tread.
We walk into the other side of life
like carnival glass we shine in color,
merry-go-round world we glimpse ourselves
and learn as we hang on
just how to thrive once more.
Slipping into a new coat of words,
we allow the falling of thought to unfurl
and delight in spaces alive with beauty,
we stand deliberate in our new selves
awake, alive and so very aware.
Yesterday I finished writing my first novel. Chock full at 87,678 words, it is a labor of love and the culmination of a dream. On to the more technical aspects now, I’m embracing the new skills I’m learning and look forward to sharing the finished product come very early summer if all goes well. Thank you for your never ending patience while I’ve been in and out here at WordPress and I will keep you updated on the next aspects of this new journey I’m living out. Peace and blessings, K
