Invisible Dread

Invisible dread
wrapped all around
like bunched up sheets
when you toss and turn
on your bed

Invisible dread
that can almost be tasted
in your morning coffee
thick and cloying
yet you swallow it whole

Invisible dread
whitewashes your heart
each day you fade
layer after layer
until you are gone

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
