Brent Terry Poems
Some may wonder if a soulmate can be a real thing or not. Or if it's a sick and twisted novel without conclusion or plot. If true... then where exactly do they fit in? Did they skip an important chapter, and not know where to begin.
A complex surround of five sit ‘round as Santorini sleeps Long before Strongyle dropped from under the Minoan’s feet Pyroclasticly lofted a wave t’ward Crete before it had time to think Now calmly rests the cool caldera with mythical Atlantis mystique
You see through me with x-ray view, Exactly know everything I feel. And know how to say poignantly what’s real, It sometimes hurts because it’s true.
Your secrets are forever safe with me With open conversations like these A snapping branch could bring things crashing down But we listen to each other over the rustling surround
Under the Inconsequential
The looming umbrella of obligation, To work, the mortgage and taxing nation. Taking the life out bit by bit, And returning a portion in a stipend.
The Same As Years Past
What makes this year different than the last? Each year I get older, but feel younger. I do! Those around me loose their hair, and gain weight, And determine their happiness on something that eludes.
I used to go through life on even keel, Not stretching out or prone to kneel. Not questioning what came my way, Nor turn my back from the Sun’s face.
The Train Race
As in most places… Railroad tracks run along the river here, And at this place, on my side they’re near. Although I can’t see them until further up,
The Wake-Up Kiss
Today is one of those glorious days, The kind that can take my breath away. Making me wish time could stand still, But doing so would erase the ongoing subtle.
There was this puddle. Thin, completely frozen, and opaque. I was just out back again, And looked for this puddle because it caught my attention before.
Lago d’Orta is a tranquil lake, And can be taken in with a single glance. In the fall the air is so clear, Visiting lungs, welcome it with eager chance.
Square-shaped pools under wind-swept cliffs, The main island of the archipelago exudes. Private, yet an open window for all to see into, A life compelled to solitude.
Today it started snowing here Really hard and dense Void of pushing wind To angle flakes descent
The Voice of the Stream
Searching for a place to deposit long kept tears. Driving without seeing, Navigating only with feeling. Over long dead logging roads,

Some may wonder if a soulmate can be a real thing or not.
Or if it's a sick and twisted novel without conclusion or plot.
If true... then where exactly do they fit in?
Did they skip an important chapter, and not know where to begin.
Many ideas skirt close to it - I'm sure,
Like feelings of deja vu, and having known each other before.
Similar interests.. too make a good ring,
But still not quite it... there's more than those things.
At times you may know each others thoughts without speaking,
Email or phone each other seconds apart from just ...
