Roses and Thorns

Roaring chariots down thunder road

Equal to—

Spring’s breaking ground to surface a rose

All of it, is noise—

 To awaken the dreamer to follow the sound

To chose—

Drummer and screamer or singer of songs

 

Silence has no meaning

Unless we are there before the sound

 

Until then—

Protest the ears that share the same mind

But not the heart—

That listens alone, before expressing

The blessings below or above the ground—

Splintering wagon wheels

With roses and thorns

Summer’s Friendships

Part I

The wasp and the rose

The queen in hibernation

Both are soldiers gone.

 

Kingdoms in autumn

Torn from center of the heart

Are rebuilt in spring.
