Their Eyes Beyond – A Poem by Brandon White

Their Eyes Beyond

I drive myself crazy
imagining ways
to pierce the veil

How the mind might
be used to fold and tear
the fabric of perception

that one might peek through
to the world beyond
the wool

Consider our limitations,
how few colors and frequencies
the mind can endure

Dare we open our arms
to what we can
only hope to comprehend?

To that which is,
has been,
and will be?

Before you, before I,
known before
we knew

Before the first pair of eyes
set skyward,
before a mind wondered;

What waits for us there?
Or, perhaps more
importantly,

who?

New Poem and Recent Abstraction: #5 by Brandon White

A Recent Abstraction: #5

The Borders:

In the grand scheme
you were
momentary

and now
I keep you
like a proper poet

at the borders
of the mind,
in flashes

of cold
memory

A Recent Abstraction: #3 by Brandon White

Hello Friends,

Here is the third piece of my new series of digital works. I love the feeling I get from this piece, but I can’t quite put my finger on why. Perhaps that’s the reason?

The words are flowing again, and I’ll be sharing a new poem or 2 in the coming days. Plenty of progress is being made on my third book.

There’s a light ahead, friends. There’s so much beauty, creativity, and love just around that next corner. I can feel it.

I hope you’re all healthy and happy.

Big Love,

Brandon

Repetition – A Poem by Brandon White

Hello friends! I’ve got for you today, a new free verse poem, fresh from the mind to the screen. I hope you enjoy it!


Repetition:

Choke on thoughts of hands
and flesh

and know that I have come to despise
these cheap displays of passion.

On the endless backroad
of my numbered days

I speed screaming into the mouth
of the beast that swallows my years.

Every wrong turn
remembered.

I feel I've been
robbed.


-Brandon White

Gift – A Poem by Brandon White

A short, newer free verse poem that arrived fully realized while driving my daughters to school. I hope you enjoy it!


Gift:

I live not for risk
or adrenal rush

not for company men
or brass rings

I live for the song

For that perfect line
of a poem

where the muse rips
open the box of mystery

like a Christmas morning gift,
raises it to me smiling and says:

For you, the world


-Brandon White
