CANARIES BY BEN DITMARS AKA THE MIDNIGHT WRITER @benditty #poetry#photography

CANARIES

gas continues choking

casualties
like lab rats or

canaries in a coal mine…

next time, there won’t be
a next time

we remember

Aurora,
Sandyhook,
Manchester,

stray bullets in
an endless narrative.

Poetry by The Midnight Writer Aka Ben Ditmars

I have often wondered what tears look like
underneath a microscope, until I saw
how tears of grief were not glass shards,
those of hope did not skip like stones
or dance as I imagined tears of laughter,
flowing past a nonexistent bridge
composed of crying for the souls
we can’t replace.

Regina Puckett I’ll Accept His Gift
Regina Puckett

Light peered over the treetops
Glistening off tiny dewdrops
A moment in time and space
A gift of God’s good grace
His voice was in the breeze
Knocking me to my knees
Today is a precious present
All He asks is for us to be content
So I’ll accept His gift and carry on
Before it’s too late and it’s gone
