weather veins

July 29, 2008

easy morning,
slow.
captivating what we thought already was. whimper at the sound of change,
turn the lights down.
shallow waters find calm seas, an ocean without breath.
wolves howling at a paper moon.
this easy morning, has yet to show what is to come.

I placed my ear to a shell which was to hold hope and truth,
I only heard the waves.
Unpuzzle this mystery.
Are the answers left in the sea?



unknown minds. clockwork brains.

This poem is short yet sweet. The second and third lines in the first stanza really captivated me, it just felt so real. You brought me to the moment, of where your setting was. It was really a beautifull peice of work. If at all possible could you please tell me your though behind the poem? It was really well writtene good job. 10 out of 10
