4 beat measure

once in the light
glimmer captured
foreign and alive

wolf in waiting
whale turning
splash of running wind

fast and wild
could not capture
the taste of wet water

fluid forms
shadows shining
beneath the swelling seas

broken shell
biting wind
guarded paws wander

howling heard
far afield
i recognize the sound

PoefusionTuesdayTitles, Poetry

gabriel’s way

nomadic by nature
collecting rose quartz
espy a pickpocket place

rummage a rocky retreat
buttons and bones
litter the refuge reward

steady sigh requiem
orphan stumbling search
motherless phantom face

refurbish reasoning
written in words
no longer propose

heal the affliction
fettered wound
last beat release

finding truth
entre nous
rubbled ruins

ticking time
my name
is called

silent ashes
shelley’s retreat

don’t let go
freedom remembers
your involuntary bondage
