National Poetry Month ©️vcl Eternity

Measured against eternity
How quickly does time fly?
And where is the end of It?

In the blink of an eye
My measurement has changed
The tape is skewed, my eyes blind

I am lost in the spring sunshine
Waiting for things that are no longer there
As I search for clarity in the light

I speak to the trees, the birds, the river
i speak to myself, and to those I love
Eternity feels like a long, long time.

(This pic was taken in Las Vegas.  The exhibit is Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room) it was a soulful experience.

National poetry month ©️vcl #2. Love

(An ode to my sister Joyce. Gone but not forgotten. April was her birthday month)

Remember daisy chains?
We wove them nimbly

In fragile wreaths
Hung about our necks

Wilted in the summer sun
Dancing with us in the meadows

To be cast to ocean breezes
Tuned in to each other’s breath

Pledging to never forget us
As they floated forever away.

National Poetry Month ©️vcl 2019#1 Darkest Dark

In the darkest dark
 Seeds germinate
Take root, break apart
Push determinately
Through the night

Dark thoughts cannot remain
Concealed forever
But come to light, burst in birth
When they come in contact
With the morning bright

Which waits to greet all
Who try to grow, to test their worth
Just for spite

Have faith, and keep pressing on ©️vcl

When words get stuck

and I have no lips

to You I’ll come

I’ll tell You

that something is missing

In me

You’ll tell me

That even if I shut the door

on your foot

I am to remember

that when I take you for granted

You will still be there

standing

patient

but in silence

a waiting that stretches

into eternity

empty

Until I remember

The tomb.
