Beautiful Halo

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beautiful Halo (Randyjw; February 23, 2020)

 

 

I’ve lost my poetry, for awhile

I don’t know when it will return;

I guess when true smiles

return to my face

In signs and thoughts

imagined of the nearness

of your soul to mine

 

And,

 

In the meantime,

without this heaven on earth…

Yet, with nothing lost,

I have this beautiful halo you misplaced

and unerringly dropped into my heart.

Untitled

 

Untitled (Randyjw; November 14, 2019)

 

I recently remembered this long-forgotten poem I’d written at a young-adult period during my lifetime. I guess that deep, and recent, grief in my life has somehow jogged this from the recesses of memory. I thought I’d include it here, now. I believe this completes my entire work-to-date now, except for individual poetry written to individuals, which may have never made it to these pages.

 

 

When I am torn with grief

and aching for a love I cannot yet understand

You smile, knowingly,

and say you understand.

 

Accepting this statement at face value,

I go on.

 

Once again, the hurt swells up inside me;

tugging. tearing.

 

I dare not return while the crowned king

reigns his one-man kingdom.

The Arrowhead And The Gate

 

The Arrowhead And The Gate (Randyjw; November 14, 2019)

 

There are no longer any words I hold

that are my own

I shape yours in hidden poetry

taking flint to flint

etching sentiments into

sedimentary stone

Indulgent Deluge

Indulgent Deluge (Randyjw; May 17, 2019)

 

Oh, brother…

Look what you’ve done

Opened the faucets

and let the water run

 

Now all the tributaries

merge into one

When the cascades fall

it’s the time to run
