Mark Heathcote Poems
Two Poems Of Two Line Poems
The still pools reflection, what clarity, within its deepest depths it holds?
Until a trouble mind bestirs, silts of time. Looking for what else unfolds.
In comes morning, hauling death. Don't close your eyes
There's only another fifty years worthless wondering left.
Pale White Beauty
Soft as the moonlight, glinting
Through a veil of silken snow
You're pale, your white beauty, maudlin?
My hearts beat speaking in overflow…
You with your dark hair roving
Oh ivory shouldered, queen
There where the barn owl, sleeping?
So quietly calm and serene
There where the raven is feeding?
