Quick Stanzas on Travels Past

III.

Gone are nights in
Antique beds by open
Windows that look out to
Water and waves and

People jogging by
While I eat boiled eggs
Coffee, and cream.

V.

The chill nights in red
Lands. Quietness and views
And thoughts of rugged holes
In rocks that we cannot take
Pictures of but see…

Out there in the distance by
Stumps of time that twist
Back on bushes that blow
In winter winds.

    So good.

    I love that we only get three and five, leaving us hungry for the numbers you didn’t share.

    Excellent line breaks.

    The chill nights in red
    Lands.

    This sounds like a place beyond time.. I really like the tension created between the words chill and red. In all I enjoyed the read very much.

    There is something so authentically rugged about this. It feels earthy and real. I really like it.
