OctPoWriMo Day 23 (Regrets) – Echo Verse Poem – October 23, 2015

through the tree

I follow endless streams across the sky
– I
Watch the contrails weaving between a tree
– Free
Coming – going they’re never still
– Will
Inner peace – help me remain …
– Restrain
This ancient wanderlust  which fills my soul
– Control
Insistent visions of a new far off shore
– Ignore
The constant whispered insinuation that enthralls
– Calls
Echo – echoing across my mind
– Intertwined
With visions of migrant birds and jet planes
– Banes
Are the cursed contrails in the last light of red sunsets
– Regrets

Along those roads … a Joseph Star – August 23, 2015

gone …
once again
but should you worry
those roads are like a siren
they are always tempting me
come away with us
once again
… gone
