We ponder on this Day 13 of National Poetry Month…

Deposits and Withdrawals

 

Life’s deposits and withdrawals written down

within the universe’s ledger, red and black

Little columns filling, filling, like to drown

Life’s deposits and withdrawals written down

Register of conduct, of every smile and frown,

extending rows upon rows, stack upon stack

Life’s deposits and withdrawals written down

within the universe’s ledger, red and black

#NationalPoetryMonth Day 2: The Sound of Their Breathing

It is day two of National Poetry Month, and here’s a poem from the dark side…

The Sound of Their Breathing

 

I watch the world inhale, exhale

each fragile breath so slight;

simple to asphyxiate, faces turning pale

I watch the world inhale, exhale

dreaming how to make them quail,

to quiver in fear, to scurry in flight

I watch the world inhale, exhale

each fragile breath so slight
