Three Poems

by Dr. Roger Singer

Never Arriving

In his
wrinkles are miles traveled.

Under firm nails
is dirt from many unnamed places.

Thick hair blown by many winds
over lonely roads.

His shoulders cast shadows
from tired walking;
feet are sorely calloused
from many places.

Looking, searching,
his eyes find new paths with
the different faces.

He moves on, never arriving.

With Song

The notes rattled like chains in his head;
souls marching, singing the pain
of long days lost to labor
and another man’s dream.

Tears jaggedly cut over dusted cheeks
coursing rivers equal with oceans
when added together for years lost.

Dust and sand kick up from under
the shoes of the man who sings a
working song.

Quietly Breathing

Sleep slurred with the voice in darkness;
tired eyes retreat behind curtains
of linen shields at night.

Silent moving lips tell stories 
without speaking;
mumbling to angels who
listen from corners.

Moonlight cuts onto the floor;
sleep quietly breathes in the next room.
