. a medieval day . by Sonja Benskin Mesher

I am not a silent poet

wish i wrote dark, about deep insecurities,
a struggling childhood, i wish i wrote
like others with words of wonderfull
syllables,  bells ringing,
you know.

wish i wrote long tomes, to bore myself
rigid. to tap the hours away till bedtime,
early.

wonder if i shall write serious,
tell thee all  hard stories that
don’t exist. i wonder if i shall stop,
when no one reads.

this is a time to wonder at the
dark hours leaving, waters receding,
black trees slowly turning. wintergreen.

sbm.

medieval day
