Blessed Now Are Those Who Were Then So Young

Poem By kendall thomas

Memory brings back a land of long ago
Where silent phantoms walk I used to know.

They are free now of longings, hope, despair,
Those lovers gone that formed a joyful pair.
Blessed now those who were then so young, so fair,

Blessed for being forever unaware.
Though not I who remain to think and stare

At the rain trickling down my winter pane.
Slow drops, as we, return from whence they came,
Wear down the stone that bears our faded name.

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.
