Poetry: M-e-l-o-d-y!

Sing me an old fashioned song Heal me, only your breath can free me Take my hands and lead me Soothe me, I’ll have this dance Take this forever like it’s our last chance Sing me an old fashioned love song As sweet as honey and nectar I have been waiting for so long For a melody of freedom To

Poetry: The Birth of a New Song

Let us saddle up the horses. Let’s run to midnight town! Hurry! Hurry! Slow but surely Let’s run to midnight town! Let’s reach out and pull the clouds down! Let the wild moon see me With voices raw We’d scratch and paw Let the wild moon see me. Let’s deep, dive and flirt with the sea. Bend the rules! Break

Poetry: My Music.

There is this thing I find my self immersed in Bringing bones, blood, spirit and soul within. Chimes and bags, rattles and slams, lifting me to a higher ground. Tit or tat, this or that, this is where I am held bound. With notes like the rumble of the sea when the moon has found its place. Modulating as the

Poetry: A song for the Sun

Oh yea Elephant of the sky whose ears flap around its shadow. I hail thee, demon of the night whose shade is intimate with the ground. How ugly you look closer but so beautiful from afar. I love your whispers more it becomes fragments of words at night. Oh yea great Elephant how you look down on us like grasses

Poetry: A Field of Flowers

A field of flowers is a colorful sight Some could hide the darkness the way they glow at night: The Night Phlox,Casablanca Lily,Evening Promise,Angels Trumpet This picture promise is announced by a retiring sunset As she welcomes the lure of the night, a cavalier. A field of flowers is a colorful light- A disorganized splash of nature on a canvas

Poetry: 5 Stanzas

One day had a poem knitted in scary silence, until noon broke the hush of this blurry silence. Scattering the fragments of whispers in day, in raging questions they are on a stormy silence. Twice I called the moon to their thoughts, but all in a word was liquid of teary’ silence. The dead life snorting Earth in their nostrils,

Poetry: Love at First Fight

One more word and she was wan Two minutes is all it took, the tension grew Three burns then three kisses, obeying love’s decree Four full moons, these bruises must score Five fingers folded into a fist, we fought for love’s live Six pants and six sighs, there’s nothing a French kiss cannot fix Seven means perfection, yet it is

Poetry: A Song I Never Wrote

In my mind it plays Humming silently for days Mind, hand, pen and paper contravene Maybe they settle under morning rays As events unfold Memory mind holds Words come to form Eyes closed to bask Imagery the norm Distant chirp, warm Honking horns, serene Leaves in alphabet mask Muse can’t be contained in a cask Still wouldn’t flow Again I

Read: Stranded Prayers | Leonell Echa

The walls of these knees are cracked …[T]urning into debris. The eyes that these hills attract, The tears are begging to be free Here is the place my voice stood Humming songs of shame Helping a belief in falsehood Hoping heaven would remember my name. Evening passed and the morning died Exacting same pain Every number to God i dialed

Poetry: Shallow Waters!

On an arid settlement on my tongue Is a land where good grazing takes too long Beneath its sand, clay and silt Are stones making routes unbuilt… Growing greens too pale to leave in this wong. The same is told of love, life and living How deep we do fall is partly fleeting We tend to cling to loose strands
