Poet's Corner

i imagine our Gods
write and send
letters, notes, papers, and art
out into the universe

hot cold truths

stick to your guns
throw your last
coin in the wishing
well, don’t look
back, wishing to
undo what’s been done,
the sun never looks
back, hot yet
so cold – don’t scold
yourself during times
you fail to be bold – often
walking is the most we
can do to move forward.
and too few realize this
and stray from their truth

shuffled

anxiety builds
up a tower
of cards, constantly
bent and shuffled –
paper cut in the mind –
yet when you find
that perfect hand
what you felt
can be left behind

written by Tiny Fawns for daily prompt: relieved

somehow, somewhat mine

my head is an hourglass
and when i stand, the
sand runs across my lips
and sticks to my eyelids
all i see are the tiny grains
of time, the seconds and minutes
climbing up and out of the past
and into the future, now
in this moment – which has just now
passed – yet somehow
it was somewhat mine

elemental

teach me an ancient
alchemy, so i can
feel better than
the yesterday me

fire to sea
sea to wind

the wind, it takes flight
scaring off the old me
from under my skin

cups and sleep

count the cups of tea
and the nights we slept restlessly
we kept time endlessly
for what? for nothing;
for eternity

written by Tiny Fawns for daily prompt: total

frail, questionings

the body of the universe
is moving. stretching
its limbs, head, and
tail – i wonder
where the stars are
sailing? do
creatures on other
planets and moons
have fairytales
about the people here on
earth? … and does it
exist? a mortality more frail
than our own – or are
we lost at sea
in a forever, unending
unknown?
