REMEMBERING TODAY

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , , on August 10, 2016 by Plathinson

Today: the sumptuous meal
ravishes the palate—it is here.
You chew a thousand times
until merely a morsel
gets stuck between your teeth.
You may think it’s barely there,
but you feel it in your breath.

URSULA

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , , on April 29, 2016 by Plathinson

I know
the different sound
your name makes:
A favorite song
however distant.
A haiku seems
too long a story;
Whole world
in one word.
I say my praises
on my playlist,
tight-lipped
while on repeat.

RECLUS

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , , on April 5, 2016 by Plathinson

I said I loved the rain,
and then watched the first drop
fall between my fingers.

I fell for solitude
in such an abyss
I could not understand.

Confession of the Red Rose has been accepted as part of the Winter issue of Heart & Mind Zine. This piece can no longer be found here. I took it down for publication.

SOLITUDE

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , , on December 7, 2015 by Plathinson

Like sea waves to shore
I come to you, undecided
yet always reaching out,
in the language of glimpses
and cold sweat.

Whenever tides rise
and roll really fast,
albeit without storm,
that’s the wind teasing
a strange quietness.

OCTOBER 1st

I asked time to never tell
the distance between me
and a memory.

MENTAL DEATH

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , , on July 10, 2015 by Plathinson

Time machine broke
while approaching Sahara:
A mayday in midday,
and crossed wires.

He was so close
at touching the sand
with his toes.

Mayday, Mayday, Mayday—”

Touchdown.
