Daydreams – poetry from the periphery IV

Has been

He was on the football team,

his jersey long retired.

He still parties there

with high school kids

half his age;

time has

run.

 emoticons

Emoticon

A person in a circle,

soul in a smiley face.

What tale does it tell?

Evidences

of something

beyond

it.

 

Cancer

Every time I look away

I see his sunken eyes.

Pallid reminders

of death’s loud voice

and broken

promise:

more.

 

Pulchritude

When we see in pulchritude,

those things that seldom shine;

only then we see

what goodnesses

fill the earth-

 and we

sing.

 cell

Falling in a window

Life is God’s distillation

of Light from dark and light.

When the morning comes

to breathe her life

into me,

I can

fall.
