If Only You Ask

From all directions and points of view, I hear a voice calling and drawing me too. I find courage, I find a source, I dare to run another course. Maybe because of inner tears, I dare of wonder, I care

I dreamed I was

I dreamed I was flying. Over hills and valleys. Rising above. My spirit soared. I dreamed I was climbing. Reaching for cliffs. Seeking a summit. Against infinite gravity. I dreamed I was dying. Swirling tube of grayness inclined. Lightness casts

Crumbs of Expression

crumbs of expression  tossed along my narrowing paths. gobbled up like stale croutons fed to birds. birds burping on crusts dive off into their own wind. give me a caw, caw or as much as a chirp. on your way

Sweet & Sour Dreaming

This restless mind takes flight. My slumbering fortune has been told. Print of blue on paper of white. Awakened with subconscious scheming. Consumed with a dim sum of meanings. A quart or pint? These thoughts alone, I unfold. Pork fried

Memories of Us

Memories of us and the walks we made. Hands held together as we forgave. Shadows had fallen from every tree. Stories held long within their leaves. Thoughts of times we often shared. Whom else I’d consider? I hadn’t dared. Heads

An Origami Kind of Love

It was an Origami kind of love. All folds and creases. In all the right places. We were two sheets of paper held together in a honorable pattern of texture, forms and color. The makers’ hands created our shapes as

Ode on a Grecian ‘Earn’

Thou ravaged bride of quieted schemes, Thou loathsome child born of troubled times seen. Hence forth into turmoils, anguish and woe, For many years now your economy slows. What dubious notions have you foreseen? The lackluster trades?, A minus GDP?

What is Love?

What is love? We all must say. Just a chosen word? Or a promised way. What is love? If not forever. It comes to us. For worse or for better. What is love? The poets have written. Rhymes without reason.

A Shot in the Dark

‘A Shot in the Dark’ BANG! … As the screen door slapped shut. It was a moonlit night. Not a full moon, a pale slice of pewter. Looking down at us. No one was around to be a witness. Warm

Her name was Mary

Her name was Mary. Mary would carry baskets of blossoms and blooms she had picked that day from meadows touched with a morning dew. As the sun would set, she’d pin a red rose upon her chest. Her daily tour

Into the clouds of our yesterday’s

Up and away it goes. Tethered to more than just a string. Extending the heights of youthful fun, soaring along the unmarked course of a child’s imagination. Let’s go fly a kite. Into the clouds of our yesterday’s. Hold on

Tick tock… turn back the clocks!

Tick tock… Time to turn time BACKWARDS! Commence calibrating clocks and cuckoos consecutively counter-clockwise. Caution! Could cause considerable consternation; choreographed care of cosmically-computed chronographs keeping chronological clocks conclusively clicking… Causing cross-country commenting and commotion… Consider copious cups of coffee? Grab

Mother Earth’s Daily Desire

Daylight comes, revealing the night’s slumber. Musky dew glistens in the valley below us. Eggs with sausage; morning’s daily hunger. Rise up, as your crops await their fertile moment. My strong hands will tend to plow once again. Plunging inside

Freedom is?

Freedom is? Freedom isn’t free. Freedom’s cheers are founded from foolish fights formed from our forefather’s fears. Freedom isn’t fair. Freedom is? Faith. ~ an EWK Poe’em   ©2015 EWK

Poetry is a Building

If I could write to build you a landmark; I would write you a poem. Made of brick, and steel and stones. Something proud and tall, on the corner of your life. So that you may enter and see my
