It becomes monotonous

Like picking up sticks in the yard

Leaves falling

Right in front of you

Disintegrating dreams

Lie dormant in the compost

You turn them over

Break them down

Doubt their purpose

Throw them back into the dirt

Not even noticing

That this is your soil

The soil that you toil

To plant yourself once again

 

Inspired by this week’s poetic prompt, “In the Corner of Your Eye” by MarinaSofia.

From the Shadows

I had no wings

Until I soared high

Over the desert

Faith under feathers

Suspended above

Corroding platforms

Of jagged words

Spellbound by what was

And what could be

             ~

I had no voice

Until the silence screamed

Above the sound

Of my own heartbeat

Exploding

Into a million

Tiny fragments

Of fear, recycled

               ~

I had no hope

Until it was buried

In early graves

Defective dreams

Petrified particles

Of all that I knew

For in this soil, this pain

Sifted and sorted,

I grew

 

In dVerse Poet’s Pub, MarinaSofia inspired us to answer questions of our own identity.

1) Who are you and whom do you love?

2) What else are you, that no one has seen before?

3) Describe a morning you woke without fear.

4) What lingers when all is said and done?

 I responded to #3

Confiding in the Crocus

I can dream of Spring

Faith of the future

Life reborn

Victorious in its battle

With borealis

Eyes closed

This warm wind

Will simmer my soul

Shed light on my thoughts

Refurbish my being

Eyes open

These colours

Will bleed into me

Open my heart again

Sing to me new verses

Of hope and vitality

Take me from the icebox to the fire

Through the window of pain

Melt away this melancholy mind

Beyond my icy veins

Kindle my convictions

Guide me to the glow

Ignite my frozen heart

For this is all I know

Drag me through the snowflakes

That vanish on my skin

Let me warm my hands

On the spirit from within
