I am still unsure if I have a "type" in writing poems. I know I mostly feel like writing when something disturbs my equilibrium. It could be good or bad. Intense emotions become poems. Here are a few of my favorite poems. Following which is a list of all my poetry publications.
fireworks start at night
but in a flash
they were gone
although they brought us joy
I missed them terribly
when the smoke
i looked down from the sky
to the trees in the dark
majestic and tall
a small leftover spark
another flash there
silent flickering in joy
at work since twilight
to your questions
out of my eyes.
The hardest ones
are the ones
that we shed
the most difficult
ones to wipe
are the ones
death seems easier.
fades from reality.
reasons evade me.
but the dream
remains as it is.
but eager eyes
for your presence
and soft touch.
