Hound

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Hound dogs baying

low through misty ceiling

Muted hue through tainted glass

wet with drops of yesterday’s lasting

Dried in dawn’s new light

 

Path once beaten

Grown dense in bladed splendor

Bold as nature’s nymph

Lost to ways once granted

 

Ring true your song

Sing above the deafening pitch

Drown the failing dawn

 

Look to the west

Bathed in quiet slumber

 

Spotless

Rebirth

Chapter One

 

My eyes

Washed new

Absolved of sorrow’s grit

Ablaze

Edged keen as burnished blade

Aglow in heat of ardor’s forge

 

My lips

Soothed deep

Sponged with mellowed balm

Allayed

Blushed red as careless rouge

Drunk in dance of rancor’s passing

 

My arms

Open wide

Released of sorrow’s shackle

Restored

Toned firm by exile’s toiling

Trembling for want of embrace

 

My heart

In sync

Kindled in love’s promise

Vivid

Sprung free of muted doldrums

Joyous in Solomon’s song

 

 

 

Daily Prompt: Grit

The Space Between Us

Locked safe in the space between us

a stainless vault of desire

gleaming safehold

walls lined with steel resolve

hope’s fortress

love’s winter haven

 

A single key

gilded by mettle

worn as pendant

warmed by heaving heart

unlocks the sacred treasures

safe and secure

in the loving space between us

Dawn

man-meditating

Standing on tomorrow’s ledge

Fearless

Aglow in blush of promise

Cleansed by tears of yore

Lustrous

Ablaze in ardor’s flush

Soothed by smiling sunrise

Wrapped tight in the arms of here and now

Chapter One

Chapter One

I awoke to the promise of your smile

the hope of your touch

the echo of your voice

and

a lust for life anew

Let the day begin

E.T.

I played your guitar tonight

Katie tuned it after the thing

I’m like you

Can’t tune without a device

Anyway

Thanks for the guitar

Remember

You gave it to me when mine was stuck in a blimp hanger

in Tillamook west by god Oregon

Anyway

As I laid my head against the wood

I felt a calm

I heard the chord

My fingers danced in places they hadn’t been

I heard the song

Glad you’re here

weird man

really fuckin weirdET2

I love you Blue

So very much

I’ll do my best

I hope it’s good enough

You

Goodness gracious

to process this one

Give me a wink from time to time

I kind of like knowing you’re there

I love you

mutherfucker
