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.

“Only I Can Hear”by Regina Puckett

imageThe cover spoke to me! This book of poetry touched me in many ways. Regina touches on many subjects with her poetry, from reminding people to stop and smell the roses, to having faith in yourself and the world around you. Believe me she know the world today! Poems on missing those we love, what the heart wants, our soldiers and more. She always makes me think about the words she writes and how it resonates with life, people, places and me. I found this book more serious than others, maybe that’s the way I read her words. How would this book make you feel?

Military Boots by Dawn Torrens

A powerful poetry book! War is inevitable because we have to stick up for ourselves and help those that can’t against those wanting to hurt us. Unfortunately we all know of someone whom wars have hurt, family, friends etc… This poetry book gives tribute to our our siblings past and present who have died so we can live. Those who are still here, mothers, sisters, brothers.. The author has done phenomenal job writing her feelings for all these soldiers and thier loved ones. Worth the read!!!

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
