Hours- Samantha Lucero

Hours clem-onojeghuo-192729

I see those mottled photos, ornate albums

of yesterdays yellow sun

Of swollen women, dream-like, in a lavender field.

They leash their arms around an oval-shape

becoming empty; the shape deflates, the air comes out like water.

It starts to breathe it’s own small breath in the shape of a person,

someday a man, a woman, sometimes swollen, sometimes

stiff, stark, or bleeding.

Seeing those photos one day,

your nose has memorized leather and tobacco flower.

for her, it’s dr.pepper, Disney on ice

the cotty musk she never knew she had just inside the pi of bone.

Snippet- Megha Sood

I got a snippet, a sneak preview
a short glance at you
in the snapshot they took
floating away in the warm embrace of my body
sleeping in the deepness of my soul
It was an overwhelming feeling
of having a soul
entwined in another
and making it grow.
Your existence and presence
has given me two heartbeats
as it’s overwhelming
to contain your love with just one alone.
You are a part of my existence
and soon you will define me too
You take shape inside me and
I shape my life around you.
Growing little fingers and feet
my world is embraced around you
I’m creating a life inside me
or Are you weaving a universe around me too?
I just can’t fathom that I have the magical
powers of the mother’s nature inside me.
That I have been blessed by the creator’s touch
My whole world has been overjoyed
since I saw that snippet.

I’m an avid reader, loves to sing, an ardent lover of poetry and sometimes can scribble few lines too. Loves to dance in the rain, have an undying love for nature, can watch the beautiful sunset for hours. I have worked in the IT field for almost a decade as a manager, worked crazy hours and traveled around the world. In that busy schedule, I never got the time to creatively express my thoughts. Now every time I finish a poem, free verse anything it fills me with so much happiness and excitement and a feeling to have created something of my own.  I blog at Megha’s World – A potpourri of emotions.
