Twitching

The earth twitches when the sun shines down Warming the dirt Awaking what’s underground  fingers stretch unbound  formally inert The earth twitches when the sun shines down eyes open to crumbling shrouds newly alert Awaking what’s underground  moaning drifts from old burial mounds unsettling concert  The earth twitches when the sun shines down villagers flee from the sound quickly desert Awaking what’s underground  sunbeams shimmer all around Warming the dirt The earth twitches when the sun shines down Awaking what’s underground

Dark and Grey

I was supposed to write about flowers today but they are hidden in their graves the sky is dark and gray I was supposed to write about flowers today the rain drives my thoughts astray the bulbs lay in earthen caves I was supposed to write about flowers today but they’re hidden in their graves

Stains

Keep your whispers to yourself I’d rather listen to the rain Don’t hiss them at anybody else Keep your whispers to yourself Store them bottled on a shelf I don’t want to hear your stains Keep your whispers to yourself I’d rather listen to the rain
