Paper Airplane

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

Carving the memories of you into poetry.

Yellow paper

with blue lines.

Chicken scratch handwriting.

Big wet blobs

where tears hit like a rainstorm,

crashing against the letters.

Uncrossing the t’s,

smudging the i’s.

Shaking hands crease the poem;

fold it carefully.

Paper airplane.

Hoping the thought of you would vanish,

carried away by the wind.

First Blush

The ephemeral glow of the sun, rising above the ocean. Light rays reach out, like the hands of a god offering eternal tranquility. Gossamer glaze covering photographs that never do justice to reality.
