Crow’s Nest

I keep checking the weather
For a drop of rain.
Nothing falls but leaves on the page.

Witness the cracks that form
All around the window where
Wind slips in and silence calls.

“Wake up!” Says the lone sailor
Bard on a ship creaking
Far from safe landings.

You’re all safe from
Nothing but the stop
And the moment still.

I keep checking the mail
For a single note
To sing for the day.

Listen to the staff falling
Scales all fall down
Crashing into the clef below.

“Rage, Rage!” cries the stone faced
Martyr in epic crust,
Fastened to his mast.

We’ll make it to land
Naked to sand and dashed
On rock and shore.

I listen to the dead rain
Dead letter mail box
Clocks stopped
Wooden blocks
Chalk line drawn
Waiting for a moment…
And then it’s gone.

    it dosen't matter to me what a man dose for a living you understand..
    as long as his interest's don't conflict with mine.

    you just might :)

    but i have writer's block at the moment. my head is in about 24 different places at the moment. once things settle down i might be able to come up with something.

    i told someone else in another thread, i don't come here to read others' work too much because it gives me a minor complex to read things from people with so much talent. they do inspire me to be a better writer though :)
