Frogs’ Nightsong

Windy leaves’ curled tongues
root earthy poetry

Raindrop-rhymes syllabized
Storm-clouds sotter

Evensong frogs’ eloquent soliloquy
phrases afresh
edgy waters

welcomes the dying
returning now to the earth
it all sounds like time

Hollow hearts lie fallow beating. Foreign to truth’s octaves & peace’s justice. Their decapitated arms unable to embrace “other”. Hollow hearts follow blindly.

The Ghost

U won’t see me followU
U won’t know I’m there
Hid deep in the shadows
U’ll be unaware
No I’m not a stalker
I’mNotAfterU
Just a friendly spirit
Sent to protectU

Time Unchanged

Celebrate a new day starting at sunset
Celebrate a new month at new moon
Celebrate a new year starting in spring
Celebrate time as it was in the beginning.

Necromancer

The necromancer
was out of her league
Tried to raise the dead
Try As She Might
in a state of fright
Raised Eyebrows
were all she did!
