Forrest Adkins

Moments pass slowly
When minds lack stimulation
Dreams slain by boredom


Sixty-One Years

by

Forrest Adkins

Sixty-one long years of trying,
Trying to understand, to grow;
Sixty-one years, mostly wasted,
Trying to find a way to show
The meanings grasped, the times of seeing
What it really means to live;
All that time to finally learn that
The secret is to share, to give.


Obituary

by

Forrest Adkins

He died
The breath went out, and
His eyes lost their life-light.
He died, and
The only memorial was
A dog holing in the night.

by

Forrest Adkins

One finds one
Which lead to fun
But when all
The playing's done
One becomes unhappy
Needs to run
And so we are
Back to one

Awakening At Dawn

by

Forrest Adkins

Awakening from a dream
I hear no human voices
Only the trees
Whispering softly
Arising alone
I go walking
The silver mountains
Lift their snow
Into the light of the moon

To succeed is fine
To long for success is bad
Longing's limiting
