3 Poems by Lynn Long

Updated: Oct 20



Midnight Rain


Silver diamonds

Mere reflections upon the sill

Thunder resounds

Yet, the world lies still

Asleep

Raindrops falling from an ashen sky

And I want to be ...as the silver diamonds

One with night

Illuminating an ebony sea

Luminescent ...and free


Farewell Summer


Finding ground in the sticky

heat of summer

I hear the thud, its sound familiar

As ripened mangoes in shades

of mahogany, fall one after another

Loosened from the aging branches

of a once youthful tree no longer able

to hold on

And I think ...perhaps

They are free


Memories


Sunlight flickers

Yellow and gold

In the shadows

of memory

Her forgotten soul

Fragments-

Adrift upon gossamer wings

She now dances with butterflies

On the Autumn breeze

Sometimes her world

Exists only in the twilight

of dreams
