Flicker

Image

The bending arms in the fields

bow before the sunset

painting the horizon.

Before the day’s surrender

the shades of stardust

flicker in vivid splendor

melting our hearts.

You melt my heart…

Tips of sun-dipped wheat

set our contours ablaze

with their brilliant strokes

making the stars become envious.

The whirling wind settles

at the end of the horizon

pulling a blanket of blackness

over the earth.

We lay

in the dark of my dreams

until the light of day

whispers you away.

About echowood628

Let me start by saying I have been involved in creative endeavors my entire life. I began playing the piano at age two, composed my first song at age four, and ever since have spent almost every day spending hours allowing my fingers to dance across my keyboard. Composing music for the piano gave me a place to heal and find peace. An art major in college I focused on drawing and figure drawing and I also enjoy oil painting and watercolors. I have always enjoyed poetry and more recently started writing poems and enjoying the freedom and limitlessness of expressing my heart with paper and ink. I am divorced with two grown children. My daughter is a published author and my son is attending college majoring in zoology.
