Heart like a boulder

Not hard-edged, stony, but huge

Heavy with love’s thoughts

Yellow creases ’round your eyes

Sunshine; gold delight, your kiss

Man without equal

Love which couldn’t be copied

Spring, reminiscent

April’s flowered innocence

And I, still longing for you

Frigid, brisk the wind

Winter lives on, somewhere else

Memories shiver:

Crystal February snow

Fell for days, left town breathless

Footsteps of the Mind

https://amanpan.blog/2019/03/27/strides/

Prompt: Use the phrase “footsteps of the mind” in a poem.

Footsteps of the mind

Spiral, lead me to white sands

Where you, my heart, wait

Closing eyes, hear your steps now

Whispered on frothed ebbing tide

Calls the Heart

FOWC with Fandango — Value

Treasure calls the

Heart…

Where riches are ensconced

Value

Gleams beyond what gaze holds…

Invisible wealth—memories, principles, God—filaments of infinite Eternity.

○ measured by the number of words in each line 3-1-4-1-5-9 to match the numerical sequence of the first six digits of Pi.
○ unrhymed.
Pi=3.14159…

Bed of Nails

FOWC with Fandango — Release

Ever yearning for

Release

Memories, chamber of horrors

Rack

Stretches peace beyond tolerable limits

Inability to easily forgive, sticking point…bed of nails.

Redolent Respite

What do you See? March/26/2019

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/27/your-daily-word-prompt-redolent-march-27-2019/

It was…comfort, quietude

Whispery with prayers of

Penitents…petitions, often

Apologetic, for protection

Provision, small favors and

Miracles too grand for man

To manage; murmured requests

Accompanied sometimes by

Escaping sob, desperation.

Ambiance redolent…old hymnals

Candle wax, linseed oil, incense

Wafting Heavenward…mustiness

Of generations, the faithful who

Believe even when doubting…

Sick from shame, fear, isolation…

Hungry to receive forgiveness

Reassurances and peace.

Heads bowed, hands clasped

Rustle and shuffle of pilgrims’

Coming in, departing…clinking

Coins dropped in locked mite box.

Recollections, how it was, used to be

Doors ever open, welcome sanctuary

Where this child could bring heart to

Hear God speak in silence, respite dear

Let tears fall into Invisible Hands…surely

He—with nail prints, scourgings’ scars—

Needed no explanation, He’d understand

Maybe someday reveal purpose, plan…

Answer to “why’s”… somehow she knew

He was the One who’d never despise.

How sore, the world which turned away

And bred those who’d enter carrying

Guns…to kill others while they pray.

Buried Journey

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #6

Life’s road went on…on

Sands of years drifting over

Relentless, arid

Often obscuring vision

Covering shame, secret heart

~

Dry grit in mouth, mind

Wind, manic woman sweeping

Grainy tide ne’er ebbs

I walked awhile till feet burned

Journey buried ‘neath gilt dunes
