Micro-Poetry: Deny

In this micro-poetry, “Deny.”

There is too much pain, I want to see more than a loss. I am that brighter flower that reaches for a blue sky of hope. But, my heart feels heavy today, after so many losses of mine own, the pain of the tragedies over the dreadful hurricanes, and now the shootings in Las Vegas. It almost too much for me. I am in tears. I have a funeral to go to on Sunday, I have to step back and inhale, a moments peace of solace. Leaving you with a micro-poetry and digital art piece.

I won’t deny myself to feel the ache of it all, the tears behind eyelids, it heals me to reveal and expose all that I am.

Micro-Poetry: Deny

Each one of us can’t deny we are an intricate piece of a more significant entity, but yet when tragedy happens as it did in Las Vegas, our small pieces become broken.

We can pull together; we are more than hate.
We hold the highest power within us; we must vocalize our tears, we must grasp for hope.

Urban Daily Haiku: Changes

In this urban daily haiku, “Changes.”

Water…Rippling at the motion of movement. A quiet beach front and gray skies. Perspective is hung in the clouds. Pause is the granules between toes. The thousand moments of prayers, words laced with wisdom, and hopes break through the clouds of change. Peace is the answering. An urban daily haiku on a perspective of our challenging times.

Free Verse: Like a Dead Weight

A free verse poetry, “Like a Dead Weight.”

The most difficult decision to make in a relationship is to walk away, I’ve had to make this choice twice. Sometimes, things just don’t work out, or the level of the playing field changes. I became a victim of verbal abuse, thrown like rocks against a soft surface.

Image of Free Verse Poetry, "Like a Dead Weight."

It penetrates. I catered to this negativity, thought all my love could save his soul, it didn’t change anything, only me. And when I was drowning in the bitterness of time, I looked into the mirror and saw my reflection. I had aged, with unhappiness written in lines across my face. With the last trip to the emergency room, suffering from hypertension and an anxiety attack that brought on a stroke. I could have died. I found me.

In this free verse poetry and digital art piece maybe you can see or feel the change of choices.

Free Verse Poetry: Like a Dead Weight

Like a dead weight, I felt it…
a heaviness bearing down on my heart; like the many times
of knowing what rocks felt like if you pack them far too long.

It felt awful. It anchored my soul.
(Anchored and not a dead weight.)

The yellow glow of words shared to you to encourage,
couldn’t change who you are.

My perceptive heart becomes aware of those same patterns; like pattering rain on a flat rooftop.

How I know of compilation

First, it’s just one. Then more adding like numbers getting bigger. bigger. Then, it eats away at your happy place; like weeds growing in a garden stealing color.

I couldn’t take it anymore. Today, I opened my heart and let the black crow free.

I hope you can find another resting branch.

A bluebird perched upon my branches today and sang.
And the trickling sun fingers touched my face.

I breathe long and hard and smiled for the first in awhile, life into mine soul again.

He asked for a story about me, about losing something, about loss. In this free verse poetry, I lost a part of innocence, I saw love and hate hang from a wall inside a small chapel. I saw them slap GOD’S name on it to condone their rituals. It was wrong.

So I write this to you, Roderick Bates of Rat’s Ass Review.  I’m walking you through this horrific day through these lines.

Free Verse – Releasing Balloons

Releasing Balloons

It’s quite simple, our lives.
Like an oval balloon.
Filled with helium, filled with noise.
Some like to think it’s more.
Some fill it with things that are sharp,
black, dark objects that can pierce souls.
While others, soft pieces of heart,
colored with brilliance.
I like stuffing words into balloons.
Filling it till it almost burst.
And when it does
Laughter releases into the air.

Poetry: Come Home to Me

…We carry so many burdens of weight in the mind and heart. If we don’t release them, we become buried with bitterness, pain, and hurt. Set them free, forgive, and move on. There’s too much life to live. A free verse poetry and digital art piece of life and love.

image of birds flying home

It was
all those little parts of them,
the ones I had ever loved.
But they, couldn’t love me back.
Over the course of years,
the weight was too much to bear,
leaving no place for me under this skin.

Today, I release them…
Today, I come home to me.

Poetry: Small Quiet Steps

image of nature and life

Smiles cross faces with happiness…

I am beginning to love creating poetry using the Rictameter Verse. …this form of poetry—Rictameter Verse, uses 9 lines in the poem, and strict syllable count: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 with the first line repeating itself in the last line.

It is
delightful to
see these small, quiet steps
have left an indentation in
your HEART and mind. Maybe these walls you’ve
built, will fall and happiness will
rise in its place. And with
smiles across lips
it is.

Poetry: Lavender Dreams

a free verse poetry… rhyming or non-rhyming… More about forms of poetry.

Oh, restless soul!
Oh, the searching for flowers,
the scented and colorful,
that stand on the hill over yonder of inspiration.
Eyes blinded by grey and black mirages.
Following rabbits down burrowed dark holes.
Open the closed doors of the weeping shadows.
Dig your way to the top,
to the yellow glow bending budding, flowering heads.
Seek the shelter among grass in the meadow,
where the lavender petals, and it’s fragrance lingers.
Slumber in the sweetness of it’s warm,
and settle into the dreams of its bliss.

Poetry: Path & Me

a free verse poetry… rhyming or non-rhyming… More about forms of poetry.

It’s calling my name,

a path laden with layers of snow,

with every foot step

there’s a memory of places,

I recall and now gone.

I’ve walked this way before,

But now I must change

like the direction the wind blows.

In it, I will find the goodness

instilled within my ribcage

of this life I hold.

And I do not know of

my final destination,

but it’s a path I must discover.
