Grieving

Chaos acrylic painting

Peace is lost, chaos reigns,

As masked voices protest

“We cannot breathe”.

Colors war with one another,

All seeking their rights,

As Covid looms, bringing death.

“Be gone from us!”

We cry out in desperation

Grieving for what used to be.

Swift To Listen

“Listening Ear” Art by ©️LeonasDesigns 2020

Floating in the air

So many sounds surrounding

The Listening Ears

Swiftly capture each word

To bring them into the heart

Tanka

We have been created with two ears and one mouth, therefore,

“…be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:” James 1:19 KJV

Posted in August 2018, Syllabic Verse

Monotonous Motion

Treadmills at the gym

Questioning my purpose

Walking everyday

And yet I’m going nowhere

On the treadmill of life

Need to stop and get off

That sad revolving belt

Get out in the real world

Find new paths to walk on

New voices to listen

To, and new faces to see

Realize I’m in control

Of where my feet step

I need to choose wisely

And plan future paths

Syllabic Verse

Sound in the City

Music, performers, singing
For a handful of humanity

Scattered in the big city 

Working hard to reach their goals

The invisible, the unknown

Hearts came together

Dreams came true

Those unheard voices

Tonight 

Spoke
