Poetry – Tom (WordWulf) Sterner


These eyes have watched

the spring grass blowing

They have tossed

& turned the clouds of afternoon

into images of summer on the way

We are passing

We are going

& the zephyr it is blowing

rolling gently through the evening


These eyes have closed

with worry under lashes

They have spilled

their tears when laughing

There is nothing they can’t see

nothing we can’t do

when we’re ready

when we’re going

We are lions in the grass

angels on the ground

We fall down laughing


These eyes have opened

They have wondered

the horizon

loved the eyes beside them

They have blinked upon the dawn

closed themselves away

found a path across the room

& gone walking

through blowing blades of grass

to the only one they knew

would come to find them
