Poetry Posts are a bi-monthly email of new poems by Phyllis Stowell with the intention of carrying on a poetic dialogue. Individuals who wish to respond are invited to send to me a quote, a lyrical paragraph or a poem of their own. If appropriate, I will post this response in the GUEST folder. If individuals prefer to write something personal not for the GUEST folder, I will respond by email. Posts will be archived for a limited period of time.

What Dwells Within

A handmade ceramic fountain planted with desert flora

each in its tiny eloquent identity   succulent greens

blush oranges   hints of orpiment yellow

at its height a multi-fingered upthrust

glorying in no more   no lesser life

 

comforted me

after a night by thought besieged

and morning pain a boulder

blocking the rushing deathward flow

 

just be

what dwells within

whispered me

pool here    in my depths
