Flash Poetry

Listen
Lines of lyrical foolishness,
seep from a wounded heart.

Wither the angered poet,
who senses not what is there:

Orange-glow sunsets,
laughter of children,
scent of a lover,
wine upon lips,
a rise of gooseflesh.

Consequence for what is forsaken,
screaming frustrations.

A quiet heart begs the answer:
shhhhh, listen.

Endlessly talented you are. This is stunning.

What alchemy, what wind
on which to hear, base metals
transmitting gold, and elixirs
wafting, prolonging life’s love
granting the forsaken dream
