Time Less

substantial
this timeless ticking
filling corners
a barren shallow gulf
so…stark
colors flowing
tidal moon
full and rising
radiant
the pulsing emptiness
easing stealthily
round boundaries erected
stare
into an abyss
memory and shadow
white room
a facsimile
wilting flowers
browned teardrops
falling
in the timeless ticking
filling corners
the qualities of silence
extinguished
strange fingers on the flames

About shannadodd

I'm a writer and a collector of words. I also tend to collect homeless critters. Currently, in addition to blogs, poems and books, I'm writing my second novel and beginning a graphic design business. When I'm not writing, I'm reading or cleaning or feeding someone. I hope you enjoy my poetry. I try, with my poems, to create pictures with words. I consider it art but not with my chin thrust out or my nose pointing skyward, it's art in the sense that like the painter or photographer I want to capture a moment or event or question. If I do that for you, I've succeeded. Thank you for reading and for your comments. It's means so much to me that folks are reading my poems.
