Poem: Sing Into The Dark

Poem - Sing Into The Dark - Aaron Blakeley

I am no singer My voice is rough-hewn Cut from untrained ears Practitioner of nill This voice deep of wood Found a song to sing Soothing the young and hard They from dark circumstance Tears like embered ash Fall and sizzle on cheeks Clenched teeth and red-faced The oil from pressed homes With my voice I scold With my voice I sooth With my voice I correct With my voice I love Strong arms lift pressure …

All The While

allthewhile

This is perspective above all your worries and agenda Maybe your kid is bad at math All the while being created by God Maybe your spouse is to preoccupied to make love. All the while being full of God given purpose Maybe your boss is a real jerk All the while being adored by the one who hung the stars Maybe that man is a drug dealer All the while God tugs at his heart …

I am sick in my soul today for I have a double mind. One yearns for the fields of green and the quite places The other feeds innovation and the code lined A place in the woods with camp fire, pen and paper With wifi preferably Some where its noble to be a maker I would write all day what my heart lights I would also pull a paycheck ideally So for now the woods …

Bodies Heavenly – pity this child

A child’s eye is sparked with incandescent curiously The world turns fast with him firmly affixed to its surface A river of lava flows deep underneath him Above the stars and the spinning bodies heavenly In the wings passiveness waits to make manhood sterile Time flows without stopping to savor the life it decays The man waits for the spinning bodies to move closer well beyond reach the frontier calls with a lamenting carol If …
