Day 19/30 of the Tupelo 30/30 Project (20170819)

in the hardware store
i stop myself
from buying the dark glasses
guaranteed to make….


My poem eclipse is available to read at the Tupelo 30/30 project page.

We are 2/3 of the way through the challenge, my friends. I want to thank all of you for your visits and support. It means a lot to me. And I’m sorry I haven’t been very present this month. Next month I’ll be in my normal mode.

eclipse (Poem 20160506)

the screen tries to hold my focus
but shadows
flicker past catch my eye

ghosts, shades, living fades,
the memory of a wind chime
on a still day

with the right suns
you can mix light and shadow into
crisp edges and soft blue blisters

but these shadows sport human shape
i watch them lengthen and merge
and wait for their whispers
