After All I Did Not Say

Poem By Paul Perkins

After All I Did Not Say - 1991

Open and wide is the world tonight
for all to see
It opened for me
invitingly
he came to me
offered up himself to me
direct and firm
he looked into me
in a moment
after all I did not say
I wanted him
yet bypassed him
I wish I had joined him
stepping into his world
to have known
that which now,
I will never know.

A Ripened Age

I've reached a ripened age of little left to save.
Value - Importance - Need

The gift we have within is living in peace without.

Dark Enchantment

Dark Enchantment - 2018

In a red New Mexico moon lit sky,
long night's capering shadows

Time

Although for me there's seldom haste,
I could not, if I wanted, stop.
The elders, I leave in a chase,
and children let me go to waste;

City In Survival

City in survival

Revolving as whirlwind,
stern force flies in
