Best Poem of Shannon Thompson

Rain Wind Trees (Three)

rain that falls
makes no sound
unless it hits something

people that love
make no impression
unless they are loved back
_____________________

wind is
blind
but so are
hearts
they look to
find
like playing
darts
_____________________

trees are
only as tall as
the sky
if you can't
climb the tallest
love is
only as deep as
the ocean
if you can
breathe underwater

Dust Before Light

the air is thick with hope
but the dust clings to the lost
the debris is cleared for a new day
but was it worth the cost

a million times yes
outshone by a no
a thousand 'come here's
stopped by one 'go'

[Hata Bildir]
