Free Verse; Boxes. Sun Fingers. Hot Liquid.

Free verse poetry, “Boxes. Sun Fingers. Hot Liquid.”

Sometimes life puts one in situations, not of choice, learning lessons is the story of unfolding. Maybe it is a new calling…and had you not experienced personal hardship you would have never found your true calling. Are you listening? A free verse poetry and digital piece to emphasize depth.

Life a Pendulum

I was there at a point in life. I was going through a challenging relationship, and in it, I found I had the voice to write words and tell a story of emotions. The relationship ended, but I found my true self. My voice, my strength to speak out-loud and be heard.

Free verse poetry: Boxes. Sun Fingers. Hot Liquid.

Breathing soul,
do you still question?

You once slept
in cardboard boxes
on a cracked concrete
that held skyscrapers.

It was cold.

Sun fingers brought
warmth…to tattered blankets
and wherever you slept,
that path
held it’s paintings.

Some mornings
an aluminum cylinder was
left with yesterday’s
morsels for screaming tummy.

And sometimes was nothing.

Breathing soul,
isn’t it lovely—

you now sit beside
bright window…
With etchings of beauty.
Hot steaming liquid
to pour down a throat.

Life paints boxes. Sun fingers. A Hot liquid of how small it taste but enjoyable.
