A Cloud

Poem By kendall thomas

I dreamed I was a cloud last night.
Saw toy soldiers off to war,
children kicking sand castles.

I soared above the four-cornered world
and saw multitudes of starving poor,
and wondered why god
did nothing to ease their pain.

But perhaps this thing, that some call god,
is but a flame that bursts
upon the scene, to flicker
and then to die -
recurring endlessly, it seems,
no more omnipotent than you or I.

Spring Blessings

Rivers wind unnoticed
through the brown hills
and budding trees,
where dark, little birds

A Scene

on the front lawn
soft spring come and gone
and summer sun
reveals its burning face

Apocalypse Of Memory

From the apocalypse of memory
You came to remind me
Of lines crossing battlefields
Of days when rain fell on muddy mounds

Angel Wings

The gentle
against your cheek:
angel wings


I am the wind whispering of eternity.
I am silence.
I am the junkie on the street corner.
I am the moralist who condemns.

Pagan Thoughts

I shouted my name through the valley,
but there was no answer.
My name died on my lips.
No stone would consecrate it.
