Exhaustion Poem by rich soos


Rating: 4.6

a persistent and expected guest
seldom speaking aloud within
the soul I once considered rowdy
and devised of the songs of birds

in concert with my guitar strums he sings
the tremulous feathered melody within
I walk heedful of the fluttering
of the tearful translucid wings

from Parting/Departing (2015)

guitar knows to cry, knows the pain and sorrow of player the tone and tune want to escape to too far unknown, and unknown crossing the horizon.....///
