Hideaway

As the plant is taken
Away from the river
Skies continue to water it
Incessant showers and streams
No visible sign of growth
Flowers wither out of season
Sudden storm
Branches sway struggling
Crackling in the blow
Leaves flavescent suffering
Neither sun nor moonlit glow
But in the deep underworld
Roots thrive in darkness
The speed of which they grow
In the mystery of silence
Surviving mementos of an echo
How each end grasps the earth
No one will ever know
How it takes each single drop
In every rain and melted snow

Way of Life @ Spillwords Press

Hello, dear readers!

My poem Way of Life is now on Spillwords Press. It is about having no regrets with regards to the past while making the most of the present by working hard in an attitude of looking forward to a great future. This poem is a reminder for me too; it raises me up whenever I am at my lowest.

An excerpt:

remember, remember
the ruins, the shadows
the glorious past
and forget not
the beauty, the treasures
that abide
within and without

Silent Sanctuary (Featured Post at Spillwords)

A poem about memories.

Do you have a place where you keep wonderful memories, where no harm can befall it? Now, keep that in another part of your memory, and it brings to life a special place that thrives even in the harshest conditions. I preserved this in a poem and called it Silent Sanctuary.

It is now on the front page of Spillwords Press! I am honored to have my piece considered as a Featured Post. They must have loved it; and I hope you will, too. Check it out on the link below.
