24.stunned

car cutting highway late and last
off to belfast
turn left not right
it’s quite a hike

single line silence drifts away
there’s dues to pay
no guns no soap
it’s a tightrope

dusk divine across the blue sky
can’t help but sigh
gab with the ghosts
at the lamppost

MLMM Saturday Mix Lucky Dip Minute Poetry

poet’s note: heading down the stretch of napowrimo 2021. It has been most enjoyable though some days are hard. have been introduced to some new poetry forms and poetry places… new/old friends along the way. today is a highway airport. i just love these….

Poetry, poets united.verse first

poets united first verse. walk in gratitude

blind eyes walk about
stuffed with whitewashed wisdom

gesturing mirrors reflect the noise
the sight of pale mornings echo

footless journey a bed-worn bubble
cool sheets stay the want for warmth

standing in a seated room
a crowd of black crows enlightened

a table set for everyone
water spot invite

one way musical chairs
shifting lights release.

he torn at the turkey once he knew the greasy clear contact touched his hungry fingers.

it’s hard to say sometimes where the words come from. strong images and wordy words tap at the soft breeze floating downward from above. and only the trees can see.
