Lost

img_0561

Lost repeatedly

Lost in recurrent scenes where

Backdrop, atmosphere

Vary imperceptibly

Theme remains the same always

~

Lost, ne’er to be found

Ever dusty dusk, near night

Quieting of day’s

Movement, sound, streets now emptied

I’m undiscovered, not found

~

Walking, hope to see

Some familiarity

Walking ‘mid mute dim

Weary walk, ’till awakened

From dreams, Lost…ne’er to be found

All That Waste (Twiglet)

All that waste…

Trust is precious

Commodity.

Heart spent it

Recklessly, without

Counting cost…

Your self-centered greed

Pervaded every hour

Each ‘transaction’.

Silver, sapphires

Pearls, diamonds set

In gold: kind words

Free, refused me…

Instead, your rage.

Drawstring bag of

Treasures…naĆÆve

Love you trashed.

This loss I hold…

Bereft of dreams and

Purest, coveted

Gem…Time.

Dreamcatcher

~*~

Ne’er spied Dreamcatcher

How he’d slip into his post

Quite still, unnoticed…

By then I’d sailed distant sleep

In hopes of romance, glory

~

Yet, ever on guard

He’s nightly at the ready

Holy net in hand

Lest terror rise to skewer

Mad nightmare carry me off

~

Along midnight’s hours

Restlessly I swim dim depths

Weightless but sinking

Blind to sea-angels, then buoyed

By feathers, dawn’s filaments

~

Lightly awakened

No darkness recollected…

By peace-breeze embraced
