A Boxed Door

Second Poem Written for dVersePoets Open Link Night

Tuesday 9/11

Shuttered
 Oak
Boxed
Sand stone rock
Heavy rock
Hand laid rock
Steady
Flat-stones
Each laid side by side
Upon the layered wall
Propelled
forward against time
Broadsided
By some modern day road
Barrier walls
Planked
Nailed
Solid as an outside wall
Shadows
Fall from above
In a shrouded mist
Like a long lost ark
No windows ~
Boarded up
Only a outside locked door
No steps
Totally gone ~
Suspended in a tomb
With no way out
Hung in suspension
Like a freight train
Jump on board
Like Guthrie and Rogers
Back in the day
Mounted within sight
A rear view mirror
Allows a close watch
Who threatens from without
Hinged
Locked
A boxed-planked door
A long lost soul
Alone
Walking no path
A long ago memory
Held hostage
Until it is no more
Or forever gone
Can this be?
Hushed silence
A stillness lays
Like tombs of fallen soldiers
Mighty heroes found
Into the night
Where campfires
Now are lit
Eternal flames
Fails the
Forever night

Living in the Mist II

First Poem
Written for Tuesday’s
dVersePoets Open Link Night
On 9/11Tenth Anniversary

Where she lays upon the day
where she lays upon the night
air and space meets
not to rest
but to live in the mist
where shadows become known
so it is shown
like steam out of a tea pot
forming and then pouring out
where shadows become known
so it is shown
both veiled and seen through
who knew
aware she lays upon the day
aware she lays upon the night
