Something Different

Something new. I’m re-imagining how I treat my words, old and new. I’m going to be imaging my poetry and posting them to Instagram. I’m starting with some older stuff that originally appeared here and adding new items as the come up. I’m planning on putting the images here are well, but I could use the likes and follows over on Instagram.

So, if it pleases you I can be found at:Β  https://www.instagram.com/gavinbennett1970/

Hope everyone enjoys…

empty silences

Let us fill the empty silences
With words of hope and wonder
With wishes for peace and laughter
With words of learning and wisdom
With deeds of hand-holding and kissing
With words of truth and trust
With feelings of empathy and gratitude
With promises of devotion and love
If we can put forth these things
We can make our way in this world

you are

you are in my periphery
you are my focus
you are always where i look
you are inside my eye lid
… wrapped around my optic nerve
you are everywhere, evident in everything
you are just below the horizon, and when you rise
… sparks scream across the morning sky
you are the perfect ending to the perfect love story
you are the dark spaces between the stars
you are also the stars
you are sriracha on my tongue
you quench my thirst like the coldest water
you make my mouth burn, with that over the shoulder glance
you are insomnia with the best best dreams
you are original
you are my heart
you are a steady beat
you are the dirtiest guitar solo
you are the gulp of air going off the high dive
you are the plunge
you are slow motion at a break neck pace
you are temptation quenched
you are home
you are in our bed
you are in my arms
you take me to places i never imagined
you are answers to riddles
you are a Bon Jovi concert every night for the rest of my life
you are front row seats

you are
so i am

love and bliss

she was sitting quietly on the porch
going through her emotions
flipping them into the yard
one by one
being caught by the spring breeze
they lazily float away
until she gets to
love and bliss
she can’t shake them off
they won’t even separate
from each other
then he walks through the gate
they jump out of her hand
and immediately stick to him

our music

sing me songs of
light through the pines,
couples holding hands,
big billowing clouds

play my soul
like an instrument of love,
push me down a trill
jump on my staccato

hum sweet melodies
into my ear and fill the
quiet ebbs with flows
of kisses from
your sweet mouth

wind up my music box heart,
lay your head on my chest
and listen as it strums out
songs of our love

… GLB
