New Poetry – Mists Of Time

Mists Of Time

Walking through the mists of time
I could hear the death knell chime
It’s as if I was lost in space
Caught up in life’s race
 
Every way that I turned
The harbinger returned
The faster life’s race became
Was I ahead of the game?
 
Chasing that elusive goal
Of utopia for my soul
Feet caught in the mud
I heard the howl for blood
 
Able once again to move
Back into life’s deep groove
To the treadmill, I return
I had made a full u-turn
 
I passed up on any escape
Deciding I was in good shape
I would make my life my own
Life can have an altered tone
 
The mists had been cleared
My Harbinger had disappeared
Despair was no longer found
My heart lifted ’twas profound
 
My head foggy no more
Life was not a chore
I now held life dear
For now, I live in good cheer

New Poetry – Fledgelings

fledgelings

Fledgelings

The sound was sweet
Upon my senses, it did sweep
The day began to heat
It was now time to sleep

Afternoon’s siesta done
Evening had begun
The birds again did sing
More and more in spring

Upon the wing, they hunt
Acrobatics like a stunt
Those that are fast
They are unsurpassed

The chicks all wait
Their bills agape
As fledgelings, they try
If only they could fly

Soon they will try
Madly flapping they flit
To flight, they commit
Through the air with grit

As they leave the nest
With puffed out chest
Parents now rest
They too leave the nest

New Poetry – Alone

alone

Alone

Do you sit alone in a crowd
Sitting beneath a thundercloud
Shrouded in doubt
You were once devout

There was a time when
Living was fun
Before the black dog begun
Do you think he has won?

Do not let him win
Find your strength within
Step away from the dark
Instead hear the lark

Let it lift your heart
From life, do not depart
Instead find and embrace
Your faith with it’s grace
