Best Poem of Joe Howell

Childhood Dreams

Sunlight peeps thru closed curtains
like a sleepy child, nodding in - out
yet you sleep. the wave of pre-dawn
passion, renaming lost childhood dreams

I often wonder about some childhood friend,
how at the time we were pardners, for life
what has become of him? is he sitting
somewhere with a cup of coffee?

I touch your skin, to gently introduce you
to a new day, and you with a smile, say
'I was just dreaming about you' thus
leaving my thoughts of childhood friends

When Bells Toll

when bells tolls, lies expire
truth emerges into a right
hate grows into liquid flow
bigotry is swallowed

when bells tolls, i cry for
memories of yesterday's light
that shines no more, except
when i forget, and call your name

[Hata Bildir]
