Human Constellations

flesh colored emotions

stars tangled in skin

bones tattooed with scars

clichés, cleft, on the chin


a vast sea of people

constellations with smiles

spirits shooting through peepholes

glowing brightly for miles


galaxies fill the void

where once, hurt, left its mark

expectations destroyed

still preserving a spark


dancing on milky ways

exploration of fear

while the universe plays

diagnosing my tears


messages in rare bottles

bobble and wave, in the ocean

pushing the limits of the throttle

expanding the depths of devotion


wounded butterflies

adrift the break in the breeze

relearning to fly

arising beyond the trees

    Hi-K ~ Got anything with a little more skin-deep meat in it?...Just joking or am I? Can't imagine how you just whip these marvelous rhymes out. I'm not a Poet and I so know it. But, I am toying with one right now - I may need a Pro Bono consultation from your expertise booklet. btw - Take (3) minutes and view my 'favorite' "Peep Show"...and if you don't get a Giggle from it...stand in line for a show ticket refund...'Probably'. btw; You're such a 'Girl' and I say that in such a complimentary sorta way!
