New Haven

New Haven

A Poem by Deron Alexis

The thunder and rain

Bleeds out all the way

Tests by fire, all the same

The meadows are here

Forever to stay

And a charming wind

Speaks for all to sway


I fill my lungs with air

And I shed my scales


The birds and the trees

Willows and olive leaves

Where lucidity swirls

Like the storm that used to be

A silent strength

And power in peace

Windsongs wrap my mind in summer’s eve


I accept that all else fails

And I shed my scales


Oh new haven please

Hide me from the storm

I’m tired of disability

My own instability


The numbness that’s crass

Please don’t wake me up

For I am home at last.

Literally I am home at last just few minutes back.
I took tons of fresh air in the thunderous stormy wind midst the power of lightning.
I enjoyed your poem from my perspective.
It is like a music that amuses me still now.

Sounds like a hopeless snake Deron, or perhaps that outer layer that we all don to protect ourselves from life's storms, 'don't wake me up, for I am home at last'...what we all pray for when we feel we can't go on, peace...keep filling your lungs with air, tomorrow will hopefully be brighter.
