Can you see past the river where the torn ground spits out the sound
that eases doubt,  and tremble of leaves is only fear, and perhaps deer,
a place unnamed where one sits and talks to the start?

It would appear that no one is here to listen to heart
that fills up each day with high octane and roars around the glitter
pushing aside the chaos until there is road that takes the lonely away from day.

The banter of lips are torn from touching heat so often, until blistered
they part and drink from this place where beginning is so cool
and the wash of life catches a callus that came from too much fool.

Too much filling up and letting out and filling again rubbed in
and all that is left is to be here taking a breath and maybe asking a question
and listening as the sky quiets and the trees stop tremble,
             to the heart.

Such beautiful words...always, Martie

Martie:

tranquility such as this
comes straight from the heart
when confusion and goodness
torn asunder, they part

listen carefully, to each beat it does give
For when it is silent, do we all cease to live


WonderfulWonderfulWonderful, Martie!

Hi Martie,

I see droves of weekenders rushing to fill their high octane tanks..and leading empty lives, through this poem..their exodus is well described
