3ww no 398: defense, fertile, needy

searching for a portal
immersed in a sea of maize

fertile field afternoon
sky blue turns a sunset corner

cornfield stalks sire a score
needy country songs capitulate

wondering where and how
only the wind hears to answer

picnic private space
redeeming defense delivers


visible the invisible

we write poems prompt no 42: safe place

barren beyond
this sea and shore
perceive a place where
peace always prevails

far far away
this mind knows not
its about a hundred million
miles north or so
one can hardly conceive

previously unknown
both eyes bare
unbeaten beautiful
a full breath budding

atop a tiny mountain top
perched upon perfection
beneath a big oak tree
tethered leaves aflutter

mindless magic music
mystical sheetless bed
so soft and so simple
my sleepy awakening
unveiled ancient acquaintance

first time found
wide world unfastened
rustic reborn religion
this where never is not

miles and miles away
battery bruised expired
sunlight separated cimmerian
the taste of quiet cradles

tactile comforting wind
cools the melting heat
heaven hugs the earthy heart
melting marvelous butter
imperceptible coat of casualty
is this the freedom prisoners speak about
