Poetry ~ Ocean in the Clouds

the clouds roll in
like waves upon the shore 
but there is no retreat
the clouds hang low and heavy
a cold zephyr blows
yet the sky is unwavering
a lone bird takes flight
dark wings fluttering skyward
the creature pierces the clouds
and in one thunderous clap
the sky cracks open
and an ocean pours out

Poetry ~ Let the Poets Sing

oh, sing to us dear poets,
                            melody and verse
there is madness in the streets,
                            'tis humanity's curse
hold your notes on high,
                             let the music consume
so powerful your lyrics,
                             let order resume 
send your songs on the wind,
                             'tis humanity's score
may the choir sing your hymns 
                             pray harmony is restored 

Poetry ~ Summer Wind

i felt the warmth of your breath
on my neck when your words arrived
they blew in on a summer wind
with orders to take me alive
i had no choice but to surrender
as your words shackled my heart
i am a prisoner of your love
forever tortured when we're apart
