Prismatic Cry

Kurt Philip Behm

Voices have a color

like anger or happiness,

shouting from the rainbow

in palettes of sound

Voices have a color

like red, blue, or green,

painting the silence

—in brushstrokes of fire


(Dreamsleep: June, 2021)



Butterfly Wings


Yesterday inside my head

—tomorrow in my heart


(Dreamsleep: June, 2021)



Burnt Free


Embers of the past…  

fire inside my memory,

cinders of time

—ashes in the wind


(The New Room: June, 2021)

    Very nice! I especially like first one, very good imagery there. If I could see voices, it would probably look something like that.

    Your poetry never ceases to amaze me. As I read the penned words in silent wonderment, the images created in my mind are astounding.
