Dreadful corpses

Cease breath and flesh

No miracles today

Just anger


Dead bones

People pass all day

And wander

Day 13 prompt from Toads and a news flash of strike on Syria ten minutes ago


Moonlight Path

There was a time I walked away from a disagreeable circumstance. I walked into a cold night, dressed for winter with boots on, leather jacket, long hair covered with a hat.

Not sure of the way home, I only knew that north would take me to the main road and then west would take me home. I walked miles under an unnamed moon.

I remember the crisp air, blue of the snow, ice crunching under my boots and how the light fell against the snowbound trees. I felt lost while finding my way home.

Blue freeze of winter

Beauty penetrates the night

Leads a path to home

Moonlight Path

Fear of Falling

fear of falling

makes me lose balance

don’t look down

fear of falling tells me

don’t look down or

you will fall down

fear of falling says

you will lose

your equilibrium

fear of falling

wants me to fall

to make it right

fear of falling

knows that when I fall

I lose control

fear of falling

wants to control me

making me fall

fear of falling

changes to failing

it is the same fear


Fear of Falling
