Humbled Hymns

  What wonders weave within silver skies strewn with stardust candid choices castigate lone lovers lost like lambs Brother, beneath broken leaves of burdock unrest undulates until the unlucky unite Dare to dash dilemmas Dare to dream Waiting with wavering wishes she silently serenades serenity kissing keys to the kingdom you yoke with a yeoman’s yearnings Together, tomorrow’s tale testifies with welcome and wonder Value … Continue reading Humbled Hymns

Illumination

Reposting an old poem from last year’s #OctPoWriMo, first posted on 10/26/17 Finding connection between courage and caution Silent moments resonate in naked reflection In this dream, the blind see   Undiscovered sacrifice comes knocking every so often Summoning the sun as skies drizzle, I curse my imperfection Finding connection between courage and caution   In a quiet room, I pray on bended knee Waiting, … Continue reading Illumination
