“Broken Dreams”

Broken Dreams 1

A sliver of light,

From yonder room,

Comes from a window,

I must assume.

.

Specks of dust,

On beams they slide,

Singing in glee,

Of days gone by.

.

In shadows corner,

Are wandering souls,

Wooden tables,

And empty bowls.

.

Once was night,

Consumed by day,

Vanishing dreams,

Just broken clay.

.

Disdain memories,

Like mangled ropes,

Hanging on vines,

Of nowhere’s hopes.

.

Endless sunshine,

Knocks the door,

Reflects the sadness,

And so much more.

  5. Lovely poem. It has an ageless feel in the simple lines and rhyme. Reminds me of prayers I said as a child.
