Leading Up to the New Book – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Freedom

I’m gearing up for the next release in my series of poetry by doing another 30 in 30. If you haven’t, check out the first installment, The Voices In My Head, on Amazon. The next installment will be out on October 26th, my birthday!


With each thrust of the spade
The relief builds
With each swing and drop
The satisfaction grows

Smiles singing
Behind my eyes

Hidden under starlight
Crickets chirping
Their sharp witness
To unspoken deeds

Moonlight shows
Begging eyes staring
Fighting resignation
Pleading forgiveness

One more heave
The eyes disappear
Contentment warms
A brief moment

I see a tremor
The last angry defiance
Of demons surrendering

Now all is stillness
Only stars and shadows
Humming in the night
