Ghost

A Poem By Raine // 1/10/2010

 Glimpses of poems gaze 

upwards from pools of water,
and rippling puddles on the path
teasing the corners of my eyes
 
ghosts of poetry rattle and moan
in the roaring winds and
the quick zephyrs
tickling my lips
 
as the frost crackles underfoot
snippets of sentences and
words snap into the air
free to clutch at my ears
 
how is it that so much
depth can be mined from
one string of words?
 
simple blue words,
pulled from the raindrops
dusting the earth and 
fogging the gray sky
 
unfurling petals reveal metaphors
that even the simplest can understand
everywhere around hide poems and poets
just tucked out of reach
 
only waiting for the moment to leap
and seize an authors pen
driving the ink to give shape
to otherwise ordinary moments
 
will you watch for the usual
to spring into unusual beauty
jolting into wakefulness
or will it wake you?

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

This is so beautiful!  I love it!
