I CATCH THE RAIN (Imagery Workshop) by Esker

Submitted by Esker on Fri, 2017-05-26

beneath its burdensome adventure
rolling far above
my shoes kiss the smile
in its dark lair pocket
of glistening gulps
broken shards
sizzling like a cold fire
these lights
thesis of mirth
exposing a fang
for throats
Let me taste the
fury of this gloat
gushing in its
creek bed wilds
latent brush
corpulent need
I spoke of the Hurt
this ache
leaning face to face
one more width
against the soft
of saddened lips
pulling gravity
hip to hip
your ghost is
chilled with
violet iris
fingers terse
sought buttonholes
like windows
night birds against
the cage
of heart
into these ruins
return to dark

Last few words: 
Esker, or Steve to me, used Imagery to its maximum, although he has left us and journeyed on, his words will be remembered by many.
Editing stage: 


We will likely not see his equal again. And this image filled poem is a great choice for the shop

I miss the ole devil and his images of his ways.
He was a true Wolf solitary yet loved to hunt with the pack.
I can picture him smiling out there, writing short lined poetry with strange titles that rocked the imagination.
Missed and not forgotten,
Yours as always Ian ..
PS:- I sent Lori some more postage stamps a while back but nothing heard since but it is another world to honour xx

Give critique to help keep Neopoet great.
Unconditional love to you all.
"Learn to love yourself first"
Yours as always, Ian.T, Sparrow, and Yenti
