Untitled Poem #14

Stones tumble
rumble
rolling down the precipice;
standing below the overhang
hands outstretched
waiting
wondering
will I be caught
tossed
thrown to the waves below
or brought up high?
Soar upon currents
spreading wings
screaming with eagle’s voice
trauma released
heaven bound
shackles gone
free falling
to the ground below.
Caught in the loving arms
ancestors past(sed)
present and future
they are my voice
as I am theirs.
Releasing
torrents of tears
a waterfall
over the land of pride
prejudice
ours
yours
together reparations
healing
soothing a land
scarred by racism and hate.

Life’s Last Call

Caught between pages
pressed
times forgotten
brittle petals
subtle scent
memories come slipping back
melancholy smile upon thin lips.
Remembering music
floating in the air
dancing couples
embracing in warm summer air.
Held close
musky scent
never forgotten
even after he left.
Caress the fading color
tears trickling down weathered cheeks
wondering
how time had flown so
when only yesterday
my hair flowed
my figure
neat and trim
everyone loved me
just not him.
Deep breath in
smelling lilac
tender smile
eyes close
deep sigh released
now is the time;
I will go.
