I just wanted to tell everyone Happy Easter and to remind myself what we celebrate.

The Dying Night Before and The Las Egg Hunt

The Dying Night Before

Silence, the bottomless pit,
Long and deep
Sleep
The empty heart beat.
It is here His thoughts
Become stretched and weak,
as moon on sleepless sky.

This is That Emptiness That Lives


This is that emptiness that lives
Somewhere beyond our dreams
And yet we know it lives.
Here we are blind to all things.
We cannot open our eyes
Any deeper than pastel blue,
Or red sharp sunlight,
Any deeper
Than the beaten skin

Pulled down around them.

Here the Thorny Crown



Here the thorny crown,
The hands
And feet
Become useless
As the mirrored water
On the window
Caches little pictures of moon
In its falling light.

Little Droplets of Stars


Little droplets of stars
Twist and pull
To reshape the world

As they slip
Helplessly down glass.
And the broken heart
Tries to revive itself
In the weathered pearls

Falling there.

And the Eyes


And the eyes,
The vacant eyes
Stare blankly now
In their simplicity
Giving all
Of His silent prayers
To the darkness

Inside
Of His dreams
…Forgive
Them- - -

He says.

The Last Egg Hunt


The Last Egg Hunt

I watched
As his excitement
Crumbles
Into heart ache

When all
The older kids
Found all
The pretty eggs.

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

Great post Utah. I can see why you mainly post poetry here since moderators are allowed to gang up on and bully writers who have opposing political views.
