Wet grass tickled feet

Wet grass tickled feet

30 October 2020

 
  
 Children of morrows;
 their cries ringing everywhere
 soaking Earth purple
  
 Foggy landscapes met
 teary eye saturated
 with pains of fledglings
  
 Stormy weather formed
 flower of life in my chest 
 that drenched my heart red
  
 Pouring rain renewed
 hope in another Earth’s rise
 The bud of my thoughts
  
 Petals bloomed in mind
 blossoms of tomorrow’s world
 that dewy drops spelt
  
 Misty skies breathed soft
 whispers of promises kept
 Wet grass tickled feet

Inside me

The memories spill

They spell slow

Overkill

Of words gathered in neat stacks

Unfolding in racks

 

The soothing

Blindness that covers

What I read

Once in time

Now concealed the very rhyme

Of breath that hovers

 

Outside me

Circles concentric

They twine low

Into skill

Life’s everlasting flower

Intricate power
