Love true

 

Beat fear

 

Hurt pain

 

Hope well

 

Grip fate

 

Load life

 

With zeal

 

Make guts

 

Rock hard

 

Seek self

 

Keep real

 

Grow wits

 

Shed hate

 

Look with

 

Wide eyes

 

Feel your soul

 

Open

 

This was a fun challenge! Would love to read your four letter word poems. ūüôā For those of you who are interested, here’s a list of words to work with: ¬†http://www.becomeawordgameexpert.com/wordlists4.htm

 

 

 

Love multiplies with timeLove

Adds without subtracting

Measures infinity

With irrational numbers

Divides two

To equal one

Great common denominator

 

My fingers crawl along the keys

Eleven words per minute.

My eyes chase letters

My fingers words

My heart stories

An alchemy

Time cannot measure.

 

 

ImageWhite is a pulse

 

it makes the stars quiver

 

tomorrow nude

 

today open

 

the soul

 

alight

Be nude before me

mind

untangle

thoughts

turn them to

breath

Melt into my lips

dilute me 

with you

I brew my words in the heat of the moment

they scald your mouth

burn

the tip of your tongue

and you swallow your words

with mine

I                                                                                                                                                               

When God cries for his children,

death obeys.

 

II

A skeletal tree

bows to the leaves at its feet.

The remnants of death.

 

III

Death has a callous touch

as it draws you back into its

dark womb.

 

IV

Empty eyes peruse me

from an empty soul,

death’s vacuum.

 

V

A baby is born,

its tiny fingers blue.

Death cuts the umbilical cord.

 

VI

An arrogant leader,

death unleashes its pack

to bring home the kill.

 

VII

A lonely cemetery embraces

the deceased;

death sleeps.

 

VIII

Red, black and white

glisten mockingly

on death’s rainbow.

 

IX

A brilliant dawn salutes the day,

a luminous dusk declares its death.

 

X

Earth stirs.

Wolf howls.

Death takes.

Lonely Bird

                                    

sits perched

on top of the pyramid

every day

she has no nest

no flock

no tune to sing

she flaps her wings

                                         one!

                                                two!

                                         three!

slumps back down

deflated

it will be time for her to leave soon

when other birds take flight

she will descend

down the pyramid steps

                                             one

                                                 by

                                                   one

to an empty playground
