Best Poem of Sheila Knowles


I find
oases in strange places
the jewel inside each fool
the drift in every rift
the gold in words untold
the hidden lining shining
the smile beneath the guile
some gain in every pain
the cream in every dream

but I cannot
seem to see

the good in you

Read the full of Oases

My Hands Are Rough

My hands are rough
I can see the lines
and how they’ve changed their route
across my palms

and I saw you stare at them
and then at me

but I’ve nothing left to give
