A Metaphor

Beginnings,
endings
flow as a stream
We are the stream;
moved by the current
to small still ponds
basking in warm sunlight
Winds will come
rippling water urging
us back out
into the stream,
moving quickly
spirals of  turbulence
leading us to
large open water
aimlessly adrift
Waves will come
in torrents
pushing us back
to sandy shores
in refuge
after being carried
for so long
and so far,
wading there in
stagnant water
till the next current
comes to move
us along
always moving us
along

We’ve been lovers since day one Our relationship sealed since the womb A beautiful birthright bestowed by God Tangled upon indigo ink stained sheets You fit these hands so perfectly Leaking lavishly long loops of calligraphy Sharing our stories with each other Intimately getting to know our verses Exposing the blueprint of our […]

Black Crow Shadows by Hugh Dysart — Creative Talents Unleashed

Black crow shadows, pass, over parking lot pavement Flying through me, into me, out of me Felt them stop on a heartbeat Dirty, yellow claws lunging, tearing prey from my chest; escaping with ragged pieces, of a bleeding heart Black crow shadows, steal, my shiny daydreams Feeding on naive hope, the idealism of […]
