1900 Poems

Rating: 4.0

1900 poems...
love letters written
in flesh,
with all the scars
and bruises in plain sight...
all the falling stars...

the thunder that came
without lightning,
lightning that came
without the rain...
broken shovels, broken rakes,
and a pen that betrayed...

1900 nails in the bridge,
1900 miles,1900 steps.
1900 seats at the table,
1900 dreams and desires!

a small fire,
we keep adding logs.
strangers come and go,
all wanting to get warm.

passing out bowls of stew,
and old worn blankets.
the night air is still,
the moonlight whispers....

we walk down to the water,
and see the reflections,
year after year, soul after soul.
all the same, yet all different...

fireflies testify to the darkness.
this long road nearly over...
leaving no footprints,
no scent, or markers...

1900 poems...
love letters written,
from the hollow place
back of your heart!

A great poem,1900 poems, I don't know where you get them all from. Every time I write one I alway think I won't be able to write another. I always manage to get one but sometimes it feels a lot harder. I've beem writing again for about nine months after about fithteen years off so I may get a better flow going. I hope so anyway.

I have yet to reach that myself, (pats myself on my back) I have reached my 100, no small feat I must say, I really like how you made it look so easy to write each one flowing to the next stanz...(lol...first when I started here didnt even know what a stanz was...cough) but I like how it flows from one to the next, nice.
