3 Poems by Strider Marcus Jones

As I Look Through My Window 

in that other way
the wind blows
and seed shows,
so Lothlorien knows
kingdoms return to clay.

evening rain splashes
like beads of nectar
on your uncovered lashes,
glisten in pure light
from the uncovered star
in the bowl of my pipe.

your eyes film me
thinking metaphysically
how all is displaced
yet told it's place-
lost Lothlorien, is the last Ringdom,

not a ruled, divided kingdom.
