Susan Williams Poems

I need to find time-
a scrap of time
by the demands of everyday life

Fireflies die
Stars wink out of existence
Butterflies fall from the sky
Rivers take the path of least resistance

I have no heart today.
I think I have lost it somewhere along the way
From yesterday to today.

..................Rain Washing The World Green
I have a homing bird feeling about
the rain falling

the ghosts are walking again
walking and talking in the night again
sorrow is eating my bones again

you say we should shake it off
you say get over it
you say it's not good for us

The mourning dove
visual manna from heaven above
beauty and delicacy in one form sailing

We live from day to day to day
and we play and we play and we play
we always have and we think we always will
yes there is a brain cell that knows that end it will

Afterwards I googled my heart out
but found to my vast surprise
nothing, not a thing

the girl waited beneath the golden tree
the golden tree shaped like a vase
a vase of golden leaves

Behind her eyes
do you see
a deep blue good-bye

The river deep and dark
~~~flowing through the night
carrying flotsam and jetsam

In her eyes
did you see
the long lavender look of goodbye?

Pebbles of time
washing down the streams
piling up

In my life there is room after room of good things
my man is one room for whom thanks-I-am-giving.
I do not know what good seeds I have been sowing

oh come oh come
hosts of heavenly angels
oh come
Cherubim and Seraphim

............sitting here in the stillness
...............staring out the window darkness my friend and my foe.

I want to walk with You, spend time with You
And talk about things closest to Our hearts,
My love for You and Your love for Me

I woke up this morning
and I was mourning
weary and broken
my life burnin' down to ashes and smokin'

Our world is
to the core

The Best Poem Of Susan Williams

A Scrap Of Time

I need to find time-
a scrap of time
by the demands of everyday life
that chews up every morsel of time it can find.

I want to meditate on these stray birds of thought-
I want to know that my life
was more than washing dishes
and waiting for the phone to ring
bearing news of joy or sorrow.

A writer that makes a difference. She has wit, she has insight. Her verses sing to the heart, their flow, their rhythm is just amazing. She has a distinct style of writing that puts her in a class of her own. There's always something to learn from her. She truly inspires. One of my favorite poets.

Susan Williams stands out among contemporary poets, by her extra ordinary brilliance and aesthetic sense. Her poems show deep insight into the facts of life. Her wide reading is manifest in her large treasure of vocabulary, which allows her to use the choicest word in the right place in her poems. Brevity is the one of the major qualities of her poetry. She has proven her ability to pen humor too. It is a pity that she devotes lesser time for poetry; but that might be the one factor, which makes her poems more enjoyable.

Brillaint, creative, imaginative writer. Susan Williams poetry is thoughtful, refreshing and life giving. Her critiques of other poets are a delight to read. Her poetry takes you beyond the surface and her insights into human nature are extraordinary. She has the gift of painting exquisite pictures in your mind. Big fan.
