ARE YOU GAME?

“One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten!” I scream blindfolded.

“I’m coming…”

 

First I bid my true feelings and thoughts to hide from plain sight

They secured themselves in safe nooks of my subconsciousness

Now I am on the prowl, seeking inspiration at leisure

 

“What’s poetry?”, the teacher asks and I answer

 

“A  game of hide and seek

For writers and readers alike

The words of the poem echo

Come, play with me!”

Smoke and Fire

Destruction and mayhem

Everything around you is crackling, tumbling, rumbling

Something’s burning alright

Leaping flames everywhere

Smoke and fire

Leaving you breathless

Gasping for air

Huddled up

Reaching out for something

Anything

Clasping for dear life

 

When all seems lost

I hear someone calling my name

I can barely see the Hand

That pulls me

Out of the pit of dust and smoke

Not a moment too soon

For this is the resurrection of the phoenix

Who riseth from ashes

.

.

“Hope rises like a phoenix from the ashes of shattered dreams.”
-S. A. Sachs
