Heartland

 

For Gina

Radar in Colorado

Radar in Colorado

The heart has no radar
And needs it so desperately
Layers of greens and blues
only part we dare show
The scalding twisted center core
Writhes along a deserted
Inland sea
Twisting its way into
Tornados hailstorms
Finally Floods
We press our hands against breaking hearts
Trying to keep hooks and shards in place
Afraid of everything
We’ve been afraid of so long

Tapping
We hear a voice
Let it go
just let it go

let it rain

down

  1. I fear the drought more than flood, tornado, hail, earth quake, etc.
    Rain is my illusive friend; lack of it is my enemy.
    Nice picture with your poems
    Thats just the way it is, random earth climate behavior.
    Out of our control.
    Dad.

tell me what you think. There's a spot for your name and email, but it isn't necessary when posting a comment
