Rhyme

Forever is the Soul

I see the wreckage

The empty fields

It’s been a year

Yet still it’s near

That violent wind

Twisting through town

Cutting the strong woods to the ground

I see the barren plot of land

Where once the old brick church did stand

Gone now

But I know it’s alive

In the hearts and souls that did survive

For a church is not a building

Neither a town what’s built around

But the people living

Breathing

Changing

Their heartbeat is it’s sound

Their echo is eternal

Forever is the soul

So let us not forget

That hope is our goal

It cannot be erased

By an angry twister’s raging face

For we have an eternal Resting Place

Free from sorrow

Free from storm

Happy

Safe

Blest

free verse, Rhyme

Summer is a Song

Streetlamps burn
Amber
Bright
Along the sidewalk
In dusky light
The moon
A smile
In the milky
Sky
Fluffy clouds
Painted
Orange
Tonight

Humid air
Too thick to breathe
Summer is a song
July
will
Sing
