Of the Pen

I’m a fighter
I’m a lover
but my pen writes
the chapters of poetry
with one sleek stride
of the pen
another one is written.

Minutes to Write

Grabbing five minutes
Grabbing ten this time
Okay going for fifteen minutes
Dam, words flow so easy
When time passes by

My Kryptonite

My kryptonite is noise
For then I shall not write
Until the world becomes quiet and still
Then I shall write the story
Of my life.

Change

But when the sea hushes the shore
With foaming edge, another score,
Above the earthen howling voice,
A common wave devoid of choice.

Work ethic

Work drains
pounds of flesh
from broken bodies.
Blood, sweat and tears
leak from pores
of shrivelled skin.

Waves

Each wave is stirred by earthen wind
Against the distant shore,
Then flattened on the pearly grains,
As those that came before.

Parenting

he lays her head
down so softly
not wanting to wake
the sleeping baby;
he steals a kiss
and her lips curled
he knows she’s most
fragile in the world
