Poetry ~ The Summit

one day, i will summit the mountain
after i finish climbing this hill
i will traverse the river valley
where the waters run still

one day, i will summit the mountain
on a full sturgeon moon at Lamas
and cast shadows in the high grass
knowing i have fulfilled my promise

one day, i will summit the mountain
with a new perspective and a clear view
when my life below the mountain has passed
on the summit my life begins anew
This poem is dedicated to my brother. Todd, who left this world too soon. I will see you on the mountain, Bubba

	

Poetry ~ Love Letter

The day 12 NaPoWriMo prompt challenges us to write a Triolet poem. "These eight-line poems involve repeating lines and a tight rhyme scheme. The repetitions and rhymes can lend themselves to humorous poems, as well as to poems expressing dramatic or sorrowful moods." My poem is more in the sorrowful moods category. 
i am the love letter you never read
written for a dreamer a lifetime ago
confession of the heart, not of the head
i am the love letter you never read
composed of all that was never said
the words of a love you'll never know
i am the love letter you never read
written for a dreamer a lifetime ago

Poetry ~ Broken Darkness

Broken Darkness Poem

your headlights broke my darkness,
blinding me in the night

causing me to spiral downward
in a battle for my life

healing broken darkness
is a daunting affair

the process so painful
i’ve resorted to prayer

on my knees i plead
as darkness reigns

i feel a sense of urgency
my soul longing for change

although light is required
for love to survive

i prefer the twilight
to false light blinding my eyes
