Oxygen { In The Breath Of Time }

Poem By Frank James Ryan Jr

Spirited airway of chemical largess,

the gift horse of pulmonary inertia;

suffering congestion of natural breath

for only so long until stolen by Death.

Coding! Masked man in green rush to find

oxygen returned in the breath of time.

Good one. Mmmm... i wonder what would be the impact of replacing Coding! with COVID! ? Because Covid is our topical terror it ties in well with the theme of your poem which to me like death by hypoxia

' Emeralds And Black Diamonds...

The Light Of Deity...

Where were you when their leaves fell and dried?
Where were you when Nature's Mother's just sighed,
With a wink and smile to Autunns beguile.

I'm taking a walk to the cemetery this morning,
be back before noontime for crumpets and tea.
I have two friends who died not so long ago;
they were brothers, treated me the same.

' While You Were Asleep { Ariels Wake}

I watch you as you sleep,
Feel a warming breeze pass your cold, still lips;
An essence of florals, and my eyes affix,
On the bleeding heart draped upon your silk, blue gown.
