My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

3 Last Call: Longing for Someone

Longing for Someone

she weeps 
silent tears
in hollow fears
clinging to the hope
that someone hears

weep with me until every last tear is
wrung from your dehydrated body

she walks
lonely streets
with groundless deceits
praying for someone
to know her foot beats

walk with me until the soles of your
shoes are stripped raw to the bone

she wails 
anguished refrains
in hardened pains
wishing that someone
might pick up her chains

wail with me until your lungs can no
longer bear the fire searing their walls

she waits
for peace

if you could just weep with me
(to) wipe away her tears

if you could just walk with me
(to) sync with her foot beats

if you could just wail with me
(to) release her chains

you might just set me free

In search of inspiration, I have turned once again to a pom seed (x3).  This is the second collection of three pom seeds turned poem.  And interestingly enough, they both have the same dual voice thingy going on.  Also, the first (When They Come) included a recording with a little audio toying.  This one I took a step further to include overlap in the stanzas....what fun!

Pom Seeds:  With Me

This is my offerings for the dVerse Poets Pub OpenLinkNight.  If you get a chance, check out all of the talented poets who have stepped up into the spotlight. 


  1. nice...i really like your structure in this....the intalicized play well with the verse...and i def understand the desire of having someone to walk the journey with...

  2. Love the sounds and the rhythms of the echoed voice answering the need. A perfect duet and a most wonderful poem.

  3. Would make a great song lyric. Must be a blues though.
