THE EMPTY SPACES

 

 

Life is highs and

lows and searching

 

For something wanted

something to be

 

Many can’t fill

the empty spaces

 

Needing sound

to dull thought

 

Sport to pretend

they’re winning

 

Empty is peace

and reflection

 

Nobody wants

anything from you.

 

 

 

 

 

BLANK

 

 

Empty pages unwritten

the pen picked up again

to no meaningful end

 

Wishes and dreams

void of substance flutter away

until they’re gone

 

Fashion to trend the chameleon

changes to fit a flavor

that will soon go stale

 

Blank yellow pages crumble

with age leaving the author

empty handed and wane

 

 

 

 

SAND HILL

 

 

A slippery twisted slope

that trees cling to

against the rain

 

The urge to slide

always present

cascading down

 

Whispers of grass

hold it back

against time

 

Charging down

to make it

flat
