Poetry
Under the sea
all somber rites
b  l  u  e  l i n e s that twist
and gunshot cries

               Those birds that sing
               this autumn night
               all b  e  a  m  i  n  g  g o l d
              all dancing bright

These c a r e f u l thoughts
your vinyl lips
their eerie looks
those birds in flight

               Spreading wings
               that sail - fair air -
              this perfect d r e a m
              in dark blue glare

And while I walk
up velvet stairs
kiss v i n y l  l  i  p  s
write verse to blare

            All silver sound,
            and d  a  u  n  t  i  n  g  t o n e s
           those wild, and wilder,
           dancing bones

A tear suppressed,
repressed, expressed,
two f i g h t i n g figures -
facing death

           Some long- g o n e  f e a r s
           your eyes, in prayer
           kiss vinyl lips
           I sigh - you dare

All silky, silver,
versing storms,
s u c h  b  o  l  d, and daunting
under-tones

           Red clouds that sing
           this autumn night
           all b e a m i n g  g  o  l  d
           all dancing bright

This dream - one story
all p  a  i  n  t  e  d  w h i t e
calm, by the sea;

         I’ll stay.

  1. Wonderful rhymes and I’m super impressed with your visual layout and the addition of the bolded letters. As a fellow writer, this poem is such a pleasure to read and appreciate the skill behind it.
