Poetry

Ramble Tangle

My eyes are tired,

it’s been far too long,

examining words

I’d long thought were gone.

 

The night draws up,

a blanket to my chin,

yet the letters reel on,

I cannot give in.

 

Searching and searching,

I sew back my soul,

catching those secrets

I’d left to grow cold.

 

Time makes it clear,

the rivers flow by,

I’ll take my chance now,

speaking no lie.

A List of Things I Saw Today

  1. Lightning webs across the night.
  2. Pale roots from a pot bound plant.
  3. Cactus spines used as game counters.
  4. Flaking paint in a newly decorated house.
  5. Stick figures animated with silly walks.
  6. Paint. Paint. Paint.
  7. Eyelids held fast to my eyes, sleep calling at every turn.
