Quick Whispers Cold

Poem By David Howerton

Under darkness wind blows
around closed window, howls,
sit there shivering.
Pour cup of coffee
hold keeping fingers warm
candles flicker with each gust.
Gets to you watching
shapes in little morning flames
flickering with every wind
shadows jump fingers cold.
Small sounds whisper
quick in ear hair.

After All It's There

Piled in corners
they gather
dust quick.
Lint and pollen

Empuja A Través

Apenas otro día azul
vuelta embotada de las flores
para el sol.

Dollar On Sidewalk

Found it didn't you?
Waiting outside
for anyone to find.
Now you wonder

Holding Your Hand

Holding your hand
walking down deserted street
spend minutes stopped
enjoying sunset.

And The Season's Just Getting Going

Sky kind of orange-brown
getting hot again
smell of burnt plants
on wind.

Ah, Some Better Some Other

Holding up
whole world gets darker.
Stop shake off fear
smell brewing coffee, sigh
