Savory Things

dewdrops on eyelashes
dewdrops on eyelids and spellbinding black kittens
ascension on alabaster clouds and shameless admittance
auburn leaves in windstorms violently rustling
these are a few of my savory things
.
chalk colored spirits and cream in my coffee
string quartet sunsets and possessions with apostrophes
ravens that fly with full moon on their wings
these are a few of my savory things
.
Men in white collars with red paisley neckties
his finger tracing softly up black stocking’d thighs
blessings abundant, for we have our rings
These are a few of my savory things.
.
When you take things for granted
When you get in a cycle of drudgery
When you lack common joys
Take notice of your list of savory things
and life will be more enjoyed

  1. N,
    O the sound of this is music!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Great write by the way!!! I am particulary fond of the lines, “chalk colored spirits and cream in my coffee” & “ravens that fly with full moon on their wings”. Don’t know why exactly, it just strikes that minor chord with me today.

      Thank you. It strikes my chord everyday!
      Speaking of chords striking, that one is in my draft pile of unfinished business. Stay tuned.I may attempt to finish it this week.

    • By the way. This poem was born from the picture I photoshopped above. It was an image I couldn’t shake out of my psyche, so I made it. Some things one should just not question.

  3. I was wondering if you made the photo, too. I like it bec. the traditional version of that is what I used to sing a little boy to sleep night after night. Interesting!

  4. i like your imagery.

    • Thanks, Charles. I ALWAYS enjoy yours. It has a tender consistency.
