Soul Seek

Soul Seek (Randyjw; January 26, 2018)

 

It seems we always return

to some specific times and moments

the point of crash at which

love, death

horror, or regret

leave with their lasting impact

impart their never-ceasing

cycles

of alternate endings

remembrance

forget

Smile In The Sky

Smile In The Sky (Randyjw; August 24, 2017)

 

Quiet

smile

cry

hug

 

No sound for

quite awhile

 

Now you know why

Solo

Solo (Randyjw; January 11, 2018)

 

First attempts

inexperience

later life

more relevant

Made-up songs

once begun

self-same audience

only one

New Buds

New Buds (Randyjw; December 31, 2017)

 

When the leaves were ochre

and crossed with white

they glittered in

their golden light

 

but when they turned

to gloss of green

their pointed leaves

were stars unseen

 

Extinguished

in the wisps that rose

that time

when it was time to go

 

So by my leave

I once detoured

to know that grief

forevermore

 

But cut and cleared

the new buds grew

and blossomed

into something new

 

And down that path

begun with roots

grew something more

from little shoots

Words

Words (Randyjw; December 31, 2017)

 

Sometimes words are too little

to express the overwhelming force

of the emotions I hold inside

 

Words left alone

leave the soul to grow

to form and mold

and sometimes to cry

Midnight Tonight

Midnight Tonight (Randyjw; December 31, 2017)

 

Whistling as they pass by

Colors streak the midnight sky

And rose from earth into the night

Fluorescing in their powdered light
