POEMS FROM THE PAST: SIGH

POEMS FROM THE PAST: SIGH

Feb 4 2015

Sigh 1

I exhale now

In one large sigh

As though the world

Constricts my chest

Though I’m not old

Or saddled with

The problems that

The others face

I sigh and heave

My soul to light

And breathe it back

To weigh it down 

But once again
Sigh 2

The world at times constricts my chest

And heaving, I release a sigh

My soul pours out, weighed down by gloom

And left to air with sun and wind

I take it back with one quick breath

To weigh it down with gloom again

A sponge for sadness, wrung each day

THE ARMORY

2017 Jan 24, Tuesday
THE ARMORY
Behold the mighty armory

Bedecked with walls of arms

With all the kinds of weaponry

That bring the greatest harm
The swords, the shields, the bows and spears

Still shining fresh and new

The battered armor of the years

Still strong when worn on you
With all the arms beneath this light

I lack in nothing here

Except, perhaps, the will to fight

Of that, there’s none, I fear
