Singing every melody under the stars
We danced in moonlit valleys ~
Quiet symphonies hidden in swaying shadows
Oh! How the wind makes joyful harmony!

Stained Glass (14w)
echo Jun 2013
..
Tandem of light
Penchant to the rainbow
Bent through the prism
Of your eyes
..
I see you through the stained glass
of my emotion
Beautifully deceptive
Blindness
to any of your flaws
Lovely shadows
Tinted
Tainted
all that I see...
Is the man I want you to be

A Ponder and A Stroll
echo Aug 2013
what is the sun?
who is he but
a raging pool
of fire - swirling
endless triangles
of light

what is a flower?
who is she but
an undersized tree
a lost ballerina
twirling petals
like exotic candles
dancing with the light

who am i?
who am i but a breath
encapsulated by sensory
vessels, capillaries pulsing
vitality - red clay
or sculpted beauty

who are you?
who are you but
a faded echo in
a shrouded sea
of voices i will never
meet - and yet i would
send you to read...

my words.

but what are words?

and who are we?
This poem co-written thoughtfully with my gracious, strong, handsome brothers who continue to astound the world's literature with their greatness and professional humility.

Losing Concentration
echo Aug 2013
My mind
again
drawn back
into the vortex
vacuumed hollow echoes
of these train tunnels
this blur
this smudge
against my thoughts
stains like fatigue:

Again dilutes
my mind

just like the wind
she stirs
dunes
by restless waters
wanting
sleep
.
.
.
for those of us that know
this exhaustion that i feel...

Life Experience
echo Feb 2014
I would say Life's a journey
but that would imply
there's a set destination
& each step is a means to an end.

I would rather say Life's an experience
that 'means' are ends in themselves
& each day should be lived
for its own sake.

from your place

I tried to sew you back on

  fragile, gold
   your moth-like
 and shadow-webbed
                        frailty

but the
winds and weathers
  that loosed the tethers
and let you distant
                    from me

remind me there's no place
among my branches

Claustrophobic Ice
echo May 2013
These hands around my throat
are made of air
gripping, sweating ice, grasping
claustrophobic
fears

My mouth
a gaping chasm
a humid void
a lip-framed hollow
Drying, dying, tongues are lying
We cannot trust
ourselves

I feel a sudden urge to hide
I will curl up underneath this desk,
escape the harsh fluorescent lamp
to respite my eyes
to weep and cry
to bring back moisture to this life

And meaning to my words
