AMAZE
Michael L. Evans
 
Final Lament

Sadder
than the world's end ...
a clown, after midnight,
playing a gypsy violin
in mime. 

TRIAD echoes

These three
we hear loudest:
the moment before birth ...
the whispers of our heart ... that last
soft breath.

* In response to Adelaide Crapsey's TRIAD.


Les Champs Elysees

Even
in Paradise,
through all my sunlit days,
I would still close my eyes - and dream
you there. 

 

Falcon Dream

Again
the dream takes flight.
Above the wrinkled world
I soar through sunlit skies, then close
my wings
and fall,
a thunderbolt from far heavens,
aflame with one desire -
to rest on her
gloved hand.
