OneSingleImpression, Poetry

without strings attached

clear window gazing
his silent simple footsteps
made way towards our home

knowing life waited
just as he left moons ago
glancing backwards blink

tearing through his flesh
blood bones memories spilling
all for liberty

ephemeral view
forever his first last breath
candle’s light burning

between his fingers
webbed in silence unobserved
my love weaved tightly

he’s never left me
the scent of his life lingers
between blood and bones

Poetry

eternity smiled

today, tomorrow
i fell in love with right now
just a small moment ago

heard a concrete word
overflowing with meaning
beyond a touchable time

share with me this one
where a whisper lingers long
letting go you know

this moment has past
memorize within my soul
signaling anew

totally optional prompts

3 dog night

1.
thirteen barking dogs
in a quiet neighborhood
safe sound and secure

2.
one barks they all bark
intent on a job well done
satisfied they rest

3.
green field wide open
ready to run, jump and play
collarless and free

* * * * * * * *
oh my gosh, there are more than enough dogs in my neighborhood… love animals, especially dogs as i have one of my own and she is a barker.. but some days, some days….
