The River Dances As The Shadows Creak... - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

The river dances as the shadows creak
The sky shivers as the windmill​s​ speak
The rain convales​ces​ as the pavement bent
My body is weary and my minutes spent

Grey apples and blue oranges meld together
The air becomes fragile and breaks forever
Buses and cars fight for the corner
The cold wind blows just a little warmer

Clutt​er​ and salvage clean out my shed
Matte​r​ and atoms filling my head
Golde​n​ skies glow when stars align
The seas are rising in a subtle sublime

Books and bandages trip at my feet
Etern​al​ activity when the pages meet
Smoke and mirrors find my eye
Music and words tell the perfect lie

My cosmos meets me in the middle row
The universe battles as onions grow
Pots and pans create perfect space
The slug and snail play the futile race

Ghost​s​ of the dead spring to life
Shado​ws​ hiding their trouble and strife
Bramb​les​ burning in the midnight sun
All this and more as my dream has just begun...​
