Light

We wish for a word like a light in the dark
Belief that is held in a sound
Imparted to be a truth we can see
A sense of direction is found

Ambiguous shapes converge in the gloom
Creating the shadow of doubt
A mid-tunnel light, disruption of night
Meandering sightless without

To tread on blind steps and to be never sure
Wait not for the glimmer returned
But trust that within is contained what has been
The world exists to be learned

If, for now

If a quiet moment exists
It is for my ears only
If there is a stillness
It’s not found within

If easy it stirs,
Then bearing bright sunshine
And squalling, frenetic
When ushering gloom

If ever the motion
Grows weary, too certain
And wonder becomes
That which I entreat

If mundane succeeds
Anticipation
It will be stasis
I’ll mourn in the end

Process

I found a random scribble
Looking for a home
Coupled it with other words
Choosing not to roam

Gathered them within the folds
Treated them to rhyme
Watched them as the found their way
Ignorant of time

Happily they took their place
Pleased by company
Line by line their voice was heard
Singing harmony

Collected each, one and all
Hidden, they were mined
Syllables and living sounds
Brought to light to find

Meaning that had not been seen
In the dark was lost
Helped the ink to printed page
Threshold dared and crossed

Hiatus

A summer sojourn in the sun
From hazy webs the day is spun
And lazy afternoons prolonged
Amid all type of wordless song

A damping fog yet lingers there
Despite the stirring in the air
Restless call begs to be heeded
Sprouting thought needs to be seeded

Passing hours without number
Autumn waits to wake from slumber
Fledgling fire that was not cherished
From neglect idea perished

So set the poet once again
Upon a winding journey then
To seek the word and find the sound
To steal a glimpse of the profound
