Nothing New

Turn off the rushing waters out of solitude

Stifle the screams to an inscrutable sky

and feel the truth of chaos in the ebb and flow

the surge to infinity and pulling back

into a place awash in time

nothing new and everything beside

in a fever push against crushing night

the shadows of it just around the corner

Sever the cord

cut power to the main line

and leave it to live out final days, its birthright

against the flow of an endless river

a backdrop beyond night and day

the birthplace and graveyard of the soul

I wish more people across the Earth could see the stars at night rather than bright lights from down here.

  1. So lovely David as always. “against the flow of an endless river
    a backdrop beyond night and day
    the birthplace and graveyard of the soul.” Your poetry always has many different meanings for me, that is one thing I appreciate so much about your work. Here in NC we have such a beautiful sky where we live full of stars. You are so right, the stars are so much lovelier than city lights. Hope you are staying healthy and blessed my friend, please take the best of care. Love Joni
