i am third
i am the bird
alone on a wire
listening to the wind
for something to die
i am the wind
blowing from the east
bringing fresh air
to a flower
for better days
i am the sunrise
on a cloudless morning
burning the sky
life after life
december two thousand eleven

small and beautiful.
can i know how you put the audio in the post? Bought the feature?

I really like the flow and the simplicity of the words. Lovely.
Thanks for the comment, Philip. Glad you enjoyed it.
There are some lovely things here
Thanks for visiting again, Steve. Wishing you a fantastic 2012 as well.
I really like how you have maintained a great sense of simplicity, while matching it up with stark imagery. Also, a hint of Leonard Cohen in the first verse?
Nice work here.
thanks for the visit and comment. i am indeed a fan of Cohen but hadn’t thought of that. hmm.
I really like this. I especially like the addition of the audio. It’s always nice to hear someone read their own work.
Thanks for visiting again, really appreciate your thoughts.
Lovely John. I find your poetry quite visual
