LOOKING THROUGH A PERISCOPE

in poetry •  last year  (edited)

Looking through a periscope

The prisms light the pages

Candyfloss scented, sweet hope

Ink seeping onto bright stages

World, watercolor fading

Despair becomes wisping white noise

Soften the edges grating

Savor fleeting, simple joys

Lash me to the sail of northern wind

Mermaid magic flashing bright

Broken hearts a breeze to mend

Wrap me in this gentle light

I’m heroine in this dream

Brave and yet unassuming

Smother a gentle scream

Another plot twist looming

Words slip in silken shimmer

Cloud shaped castles floating by

Heaven is spark and glimmer

Breathing a vanilla sky

Escape from a fraying rope

Escape the wounds weeping

Wrapped in a cocoon of hope

You cannot hear despair creeping

Looking through a periscope

The prisms light the pages

Candyloss scented, sweet hope

Ink seeping onto bright pages
