  • #escapril Day 9: we’re not alone @letsescapril #escapril2022 #poetry

    Light, mass, solid, existing. Biology, genetics, alien? We are not alone. Life, different meanings to different people Who’s to say? That there is not some body, being, entity out there, away from Earth Not like us Distinct indeed- alien. Billions of stars Millions capable Of having life. Life does not mean sentience. Even if only […]

  • #escapril Day 6: time (nonlinear) @letsescapril #escapril2022 #poetry

    Chaotic dimensions Brilliant galaxies Looking into the past In the future. Where’s the present? The Universe is in the past: It’s all same to us. Dark matter, Dark energy. So many theories. Multi-dimensional, Dodecahedrons Black holes: Can we travel? Faster than physics allows? Who’s to say that time travel is not possible When time is […]

  • #escapril Day 5: crush @letsescapril #escapril2022 #poetry

    A wonder to behold Such destruction Stars, galaxies, and maybe universes Collide. There is beauty In the death of a star When one consumes The other. Perhaps three, or more bodies Spiral around before Merging to one being. Just like crushing herbs They too morph Into something else entirely. What’s to say that stars are […]

  • #escapril Day 4: strange behavior @letsescapril #escapril2022 #poetry

    What is that strange behavior I see? A willow not bending in the breeze. A dog not acting dog-like A cat that wants company. A mom without her children for a day. Sibling children getting along Gaming together in the same room, But not with each other. Adults going out without the children: A date […]

  • #escapril Day 3: limbs @letsescapril #escapril2022 #poetry

    Gangly, straight, crooked, or small. Plants and trees have limbs, So do people all. Pretzel-like, Full Lotus, Running, Jumping, Being still. Or Thumping Sometimes, they hurt. Others had to have them, be taken away. Remember when, Innovation replacing those that are missing. People doing amazing feats That are winning. Some may not grow at all: […]

  • #escapril Day 2: a separation @letsescapril #escapril2022 #poetry

    There is a divide I see, Between people, places, and things. The political and the world In conflict: The microcosmic and macrocosm, The personal and the professional, A dichotomy, and opposing sides. They are out there and inside. As individuals, We are separate among the whole. As people, We are different, and yet, The same. […]

  • #escapril Day 1: when I opened my eyes @letsescapril #escapril2022 #poetry

    When I open my eyes,I see a bright new day.When I behold the way,The changes I see:The birds are callingIt is spring time againWhat do I do when,I want to be.Pollen risesGardens growWill this ebb and flowContinue to the next day?When I open my eyes,I’m filled with wonderOf what comes next yonder:Come seek with me.©Kim […]
