Comments about John Powers
Me And The Moon
i stepped into the dark to grab a light,
and saw above me the moon in the night.
i stood alone in the cold and wondered what i am,
all the rest had gone to sleep, just shy of 5 am.
The air was frigid and the ground was frail,
the smoke around me burned cool with a trail.
The lamp lit the snow and all that was around
and all was broken, but me and the moon.
So i stood and watched my breath
i tasted the tar on my teeth
i wanted to beg at the foot of the sky
but knew no answer was there to hear.
Only the moon, burning white thru clouds
gave me ...
Woman Of The Rain
It rained today
sudden with blowing wind
I breathed in the cool, wet
a woman came into my sight
her hair heavy
sweater spotted with
the sky's tears
she came inside
