Poem By David Zvekic

What was one hour, but seemed an hour alive?
An hour given over - O too brief!
A bursting sun, a breath, a desperate drive
to be an angel's heir; with wings - believe!

To hold for one long instant, hands; to seize
the truth and learn what feeling (lorn to give)
had dropped, into the darkness like a thief -
a reason, justifying It will live.

No stars amongst the billions burned so near;
So visible, indivisible and right:
Let these two wandering ones pass beyond sight,
And seeming fade, but sharing - shine one single night.

I drifted off throughout that night,
My breath held deep in thrall to art
With words I felt but didn't write -
They fled my pen; I couldn't start.

The Lazy Poor Poet [limerick]

There once was a lazy poor poet,
But indignant she didn't quiet know it.
Just one bad review,
And her blood turned all blue,

All Things Lost

Of all words ever said before,
Of all the knowledge known,
Of all the theories held before,
And all that I've been shown;

As Wings On Wind

I dared to know a forbidden mind,
Innocence imprisoned in darkness,
One soul trapped beneath fear, in irons,
A kindred spirit bent beyond reason,

Leave me where the snows will fall;
I'll lay myself a bed beneath
the stars; I'll listen to the wind
and sing my sorrows to the seas.

Love's Logic [couplet Sonnet]

The more ways I find to express my love,
The more I love you, and the better for love,
And more: What more than seek such ways to it;
Expressing love (and therefore to do it) .
