Changing Moods


Sleeping depression gravitating bedís dead weight

Sunken sensations swallowing sad sleepy sorrows

Spring fight recoiling, jettisoning sunshine mourning

Flightís light, billowing grey boring overcast morning.


Dull dreary promise blankets any outlook changing,

Swirling gulls with buzzard vision scavenging

Searing eyes penetrating skeletonís stripped core,

Naked soul - laid bare alone - so alone evermore.


Sigh deep within heartbeats vibrations - hurting so,

Chilled on tears frozen silent in whispered hope

Lying dormant volcano spewing inside empty words.

What is the reason to reach up, open vocal cords?


Shallow scream aloud whimpered motel tomb

Words evaporating canvas moisture to parchment.

Enamored loveís verse haunted enamel patches

Weathered wrinkled, raisin prune draining doom.


Storm ripping apart innards, flesh of emotions cries,

Wailing downpour drowning desperation breathes

Fighting on against the currents RIP tides moans,

 Mindís winds twisting turning whirlpool hurricane.


Lost, so lost desolate desert disconcert dry mouth

Shell existence wish, still crawling inside a drough.

Dry ice melting clouds tears on surrounding details

Cocoon of a Poet blossoming change in scenery.


Oh, dance with me, open this silver lining fantasy

Spring forth your smile of pure enlightenment.

Cyan baby blues, pillowed satin soft silk pillows

Cocoons of wilted darkness whisked away - kiss.


Bliss of wild flower stems glow, growing brilliant

Butterflies hatching fresh air blossoming spirit - bright

Rainbow waterfalls painting poetryís magical verse

Quenching singing smile stanzas - dispersing a hearse.


Spread your wingís mind so ever clear Artmosphere.

Sculpture divine tranquility in being a blessed artist   

Paint your HeArt upon imagery, Godís ceiling canvas,

Michelangelo ride the roller coaster full spectrum.

In living life without fear, faith never denied its words!


Note: The magic of Poetic verse is that it will write the roller coaster of emotions in living lifeís frustrations that weather within our words in seasons of a poetís existence.

This was like a rollercoaster of descriptions, taking the reader through the hills and valleys of your words. I particularly liked the gothic-Poe tone to the center of this-an almost Dali-esque world created.

Beautiful words so artistically chosen to paint a portrait one could only imagine is real. Have faith and the world will open its doors to anyone who knocks...

Be always safe,
