As We Slept - Poem by Stug Jordan

I reached out
as we slept,
slowly waking
finding the bed,
behind eyes;
sweet dreams
inside our heads.

Looking in
at odd hours
as winter approaches;
its deaf tread
on ice,
across the frozen
flowerbed.

Bound together,
tight sheets:
arms like stone
as the winds throw
over lawns;
grey with the
dirty snow.

Your hands
reach in morning,
in a new sun
where flowers undo;
lined in soil,
heads bowed on
death row.

    I enjoyed this very much as well Stug, the stylings verys similar to that of Dunstan Attard (Malta) , I think the spirirual overtones and unobtrusive imagery work well here. I will be back to read more of your fine poetry later.

    I think you wrote this quickly and I think it's rather beautiful - one of those of-the-tongue pieces. t x (Report)Reply

    God this is good, there are some blinding lines in here. It seems effortless and flows so very smoothly. HG: -) xx (Report)Reply
