Anniversaries

These…
Reflections, in
time. Mirrored
actions,

spaced

sequenced
situations
pushing
pulling,
remembering
bright, twisted
emotions,
twilight
sunsets,
leaves gusting,
emotions
twirling,
doors, slamming
saying
goodbye-
again.

Over Time

These hands
have toiled,
sweating, rough
and bleeding.

This furnace,
my body, striving
onward, in
day’s searing
heat-
desiring
collapse.

Stiff, brittle
claws, frozen-
these
hands.

Mind,
body,
spirit-
slowed, by
fatigue,
numbing pain.

Siphoned, by
parasitic quotas.
Besieged, by
ruthless taskmasters,
until, day’s
end.

Resting-
from
the labor,
of
the
day.

Hilltop

Jubilant
showers,
golden
flowers-
glittering.
Dusky
dancing
rainbows,
bursting-
pursuing
emeralds,
rubies,
sapphires-
ethereal
treasures.
Pupils
delightfully
ravished,
finale
reflecting
tears dropping,
descending,
homeward.

Independent…

Over Time 1.0

These hands have toiled,
sweating, rough and bleeding.
Continuing on.

The body,
my great furnace,
driving forward
in the heat of the day,
wanting,
desiring collapse-
continuing.

Stiff and brittle claws,
frozen,
my hands have been.

Mind,
body,
spirit-
slowed by fatigue,
numbed with pain.

Siphoned by parasitic quotas.
Besieged by ruthless taskmasters,
until
the day’s end.
When I might rest
from,
the labor,
of the day.
