2020 Poems


Restrained cognitions
Deprived hindsight
Severed Apparition
Lost in transit

Words fall; boulders
Rolling out of mouths
A landslide smolders
With the smoke
Of their stale statements

Old bread, forgotten wisdom
You can’t couple every pear 🍐
Eat of the fruit; a
Dance for the tastebuds
Of a flavorful mind

Fruits take labors
And time and care
So where? Does that leave us
Always from the needs;
Us; Trying to find commonality

We do not try hard enough
We try again tomorrow!

By Makar
