SOOTHING THE CHAOS

In between the cracks
Love and eternity peep
Soothing the chaos

NOW I SEE CLEARLY

Soft words deceived  me
Until I saw through the mask
Now I see clearly

ALL NOW IS DYING

Leaves crunch beneath feet
As  stones cry out in anguish
All now is dying

NATURE HOLDS HER OWN

Nature holds her own
Gulls are shrieking overhead
Echoing our pain  

I TRAVEL ALONE

Journeying in death
I had to let go of you
I travel alone

HEAVING  EARTH

Heaving the earth threw
Its dark embers into play
Until shoots peeked through

My name is Lorraine Lewis. I have always written poetry but began to write more in earnest following having serious advanced blood cancer and going blind and becoming wheelchair-bound. I greatly enjoy experimenting with different forms of poetry, preferring the shorter forms. Editor’s note – This is Lorraine’s second feature on The Short of It.
