#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 12: Forevermore, by Kirsten Curcio

My cracked heart leaks cold tears

Fears of being alone
spilled nightly across pillows

I awake to sink into sand, directionless
watching waves like mounting thoughts
as wishes of love flee my lips
silenced in morning fog
and loneliness comes home

Until you
a wish comes true…

My palms welcome, embracing gold bliss
Dreams of forever fill my cracked heart
and loneliness lifts

Together, love has a home
spilled nightly across pillows
and every moment of sun
in our gentle life on the shore
moving forward as one

Forevermore

Forevermore was inspired by the poem Moments Grasped. You can read more of Kirsten’s poetry on Ghost Human Bones.

Musical Heart

morning tranquility
broken and crumbled, my part

of ashes spread all over the flower garden
and within the nest of my heart

made out of sticks and stones…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

cosmos within, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, cosmos within, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

cosmos within

I sit, knees and hands folded
end over end

awaiting the cosmos to appear
within

my heart, a flower blooming
in the vacuum of space and time

a riddle, when chasing…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

oh, how deeply I love her…

hand-in-hand,
we traipse this land,
passing by trees, and foliage
as we glide,
together, one step
in front of the other…

we hold
within our hearts
a special place
for our mother, and

look up
with adoration,
a sense of satisfaction,
and the most gentle elation

as the light

cascades softly
off the trees,
through the glade,
and in front of me, and

I see,
and feel free…

as the warmth
caresses my being
in its entirety, I say
a silent prayer, and

give thanks
on this day,
for this moment
of time alone with my mother

oh, how deeply I love her…

In response to the WDYS #100 prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.

lights shine in night sky,
an owl sings in the distance,
crickets echo, day
contemplating existence,
be still and take it all in
