In Prayer Did I Hear A Hum..?

Poem By Mark Heathcote

In prayer did I hear a hum
loud as any drum,
with what measured breath did weigh?
The probity-of-all our days
the incline of this steep decay.

Faiths emphatic leap
the deities of men the ungodliness of snakes
love in its mortal coils heap.
Motionlessly, kneeling, frequently asleep
only momentarily, awake.

Like a cricket at the gate
ready to jump blindly toward fate.
-loud as any, drum?
‘Come, approach, come…come? '

Restrain Me

Restrain me because I want to bathe in your sun
I want a southern moon to shiver on you
From the naked shadows, I cast over you
Restrain me I'm like an applecart toppled over

I've Frozen Time & Space

Fleeting as an ocean wave;
Once, surge waters knocked us both for six. "I know
And it is as if only yesterday for me
I held your hand in mine, a lifetime ago.

Let me fall under some natural-disaster
The eye of a storm picks up the hereafter

Be felled as if by a random act of god,

Poverty Is A Gift

Father, poverty is a gift
Ask any bird taking a rain bath.
Son, don't make's me laugh
There's nothing but rain

Encompasses A Whole

Do our dreams leave impressions?
Like fossils leave-footprints
why count our possessions?
With others be wolfish.

The Falling Snow

From my home beneath your window
By sight I love you
By divinity, I kiss you
By touch, I embrace you
