If you want to keep something close to you,

you put it in your pocket.

Some pockets are deep; some pockets are shallow.

These poems are of the same scope and landscape.

Each one holds a small treasure.

Morning Breath

Posted by Sally Clark on Saturday, July 25, 2009, In : poetry 


Each stroke of
minty freshness
scrubs away sins
of a careless mouth;
God's cleansing forgivness
brightening our smiles
and freshening
our lives.

from the earth; periwinkle
waves of moonlight in
an ocean of leaves.

Freedom Flies Away

Posted by Sally Clark on Tuesday, July 21, 2009, In : poetry 


Freedom feels so far away,
this libery draped land of
gleaming opportunty, striped
in star-spangled independence,
slipping slowly from our grasp.

Hushed

Posted by Sally Clark on Friday, July 17, 2009, In : poetry 


Sometimes it seems
the older we get
the more quiet we
crave, listening
more closely
for the call to
come home.

Hope

Posted by Sally Clark on Thursday, July 16, 2009, In : poetry 


a dry dark faith
a wet cool God
        in between
a stone angel
prays

        for things with
              feathers

Barometer Bush

Posted by Sally Clark on Wednesday, July 15, 2009, In : poetry 


Why does the purple sage bloom
in the middle of a drought; dusty
silverleafs bursting with sweet-bee
cocktails; wild Texas Rangers
chuckling at the forecasted
deficiency of clouds; a joke held
too long inside, now ruptured into
the wavering heat?

Closed

Posted by Sally Clark on Tuesday, July 14, 2009, In : poetry 


Angry trunk waving,
enough is enough;
when tomorrow comes,
you can buy more stuff.

Until it is then,
now it is stopped;
don't bother to knock,
we're not in the shop!

Eden's Gate

Posted by Sally Clark on Monday, July 13, 2009, In : poetry 


Narrow stone walls
keep eyes moving forward;
the shining promised land
at the end of our passage.

Grass

Posted by Sally Clark on Sunday, July 12, 2009, In : poetry 


Summer's bright blades
slice loose soil,
tentacle packed ground,
cushion my steps with
restful courage.

a rocky path littered with
bright blossoms.

Stickers

Posted by Sally Clark on Wednesday, July 8, 2009, In : poetry 


Cocklebur orbs
in shiny green grass;
tiny assassins;
miniscule lance.

Chalk Letters

Posted by Sally Clark on Tuesday, July 7, 2009, In : poetry 


In chalk flowers
and big letter,
the skip-happy pink
and blue poem of
being four years old
is how we know that
God loves joy.

Shade

Posted by Sally Clark on Monday, July 6, 2009, In : children's poems 


Hop scotch spots
dot the yard;
summer time sun
swimming in shade.

Fourth of July

Posted by Sally Clark on Saturday, July 4, 2009, In : poetry 


A tractor to work,
some seed and faith
that God is good and
right is not wrong.

Every day has a poem. I watch, I listen, I think, I pray. When I hear a poem, I write it down. Sometimes I find a picture that illustrates the day. I am always surprised. I hope you will be, too.

A writer of many genres, Sally Clark loves living in a small town with her husband where their grown children and five grandchildren all live within walking distance. Crowded with relationships, busy with activities, Sally takes refuge on the balcony of their old Victorian house - the perfect place to pen her thoughts.
