SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: Between the Lines



I write
You sing
Between the lines
Love.
I write
You sing
Between the bars
Unrequited.
I write
You sing
Between the notes
Sorrow.
I write
You sing
Between the silences
Music ends.
Between the lines
I am born, live and die.

The Friends Award

A sweet and "Friend" friendly award indeed! Thank you so very much, Kat, of Poetikat's Invisible Keepsakes and
Poetikat's Blasts from the Past .


Referencing the creators, the award is not being about the most popular or having the most read blog. It is because you're a friend. As I feel this sentiment towards so many bloggers, this award is for you.

Thank you again, Kat! :))

SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: Freedom


Freedom knows no race, nor color, nor gender.
It stands naked in the light of truth.

SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: Grieving


Children...
Helpless, speechless
Hoping to be heard,
comforted, consoled
Cataloguing harbored nightmares
Scarred, outside and in
As they sleep in the web of violent designs.

SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: I Dig


I dig
Way deep.
Way way deep
within me.
For hours, months, even years
in search where all is still, peaceful.
He does something.
She says something.
Something happens.
And the many selves of myself dug up
cave in and bury my resting place.
I dig. Again.
