Julyn Pride Poems
Inherently it will throw a curve Even as I stand At the apex of my cavalcade That is the frozen Bering shore.
An Afternoon Of Haiku
Fish In liquid wonder A sparkle of fire swim
Through the misted glass Of my silent heart I feel you quietly trespass, Though we must remain apart.
She came from up there Where glaciers blue and green Play with the lights. Warm hearts melt the icy crags
10 p.m. A child is weeping Known only to those creatures creeping Through the night, a trail of slime
An Empty Jar
She holds the world in glass. Her reflection, upside down, peers back. She sees a bell shaped jar And begins a thought, a deed
Gold toed boots from another carnival, The Hawker stares at gray rain, His black leather Down Under hat with bottle cap decor Shoved as low as it will go.
Beneath a sabertooth eave I began to grieve. Pine bough roofs brushed Snowdrift glitter, hushed
I saw a demon triangle face Gazing behind green eyes Pretending a compassionate reach Masking it as something called love.
The rain flows down the window pane, A cold gray April rain. The crow continues to caw. Its detail less black sits on a branch
To Longfellow, With Love - From My Book ...
They are an open mystery Inside a velvet night. The moon lights a path across an endless sea Without a shore in sight.
Found Poem - Toxic People
Toxic people Don't wash their hands. Think their bigger than mason jars. Detained, a hidden privacy threat
Found Poem - The Motley Fool Of 10-15-20...
Unveiled, box of conventional wisdom A bombshell easy to fall For a generation now. Outflanked, the strongest hand
The Willow Road
Many a road the lantern lit Beside the willow route. A splintered signpost Tells Absalom the way.
Through the misted glass
Of my silent heart
I feel you quietly trespass,
Though we must remain apart.
Our bond of words and rhyme
Shall placidly await future days,
When the spinnings of time
Join them in woven tapestries.
