Poetry Today

The Weeping of Time…

Dawn breaks

With jagged breath

The chill settled

In hearts too cold

To feel pain

And eyes too bitter

To see the stars

And stripes



Poetry Today

Empty Cradle

Empty cradle
By the fireside
Silent tears
Fall silently
Barren hands
Long to hold
The forgotten
Painful memories
Held Tight
The light is no more
Receding joy
No longer my comfort
Scarred womb
Cried out
Hollow tears
Disconnect the soul
Empty cradle
My forever torment©

Empty Cradle
