Voices

Monday, April 19, 2021

the voices of those / who believe in my words / ring through my head / like a hymn / on Sunday morning / pulling me out of the pits / of rejection / oh! / how it stings like a fiery bee / to be told / one’s soul is off-tune / the dawns I rose / to catch the earth still / so I could capture it / in my journal / scrawling / the sharp ticks / of a grandfather clock  / as I try to beat the sun / by and by / I find stories / in the moments / of everyday / my husband dancing to records / my dog diving into creeks  / moments / to never die / carried on / in readers / for others / to know the hearts I know / settles me to sleep / the buttery moon / drips upon my lips / leaving honeyed poems / to catch in morning’s coming


This poem was published in Issue 8 of Ice Lolly Review.
