Failing as we Fall, by Scarlett Rains

Failing as we Fall

Words trip from my lips,
stumbling, they fall 
in stops and starts,
tumbling towards misinterpretation.
Coward that I am,
I call them back.
Too late. 
Your eyes remind me, again,
I am too late.

Potential Untapped, a poem by Scarlett Rains

Potential Untapped

The one note, unsung, sets the 
tone for it all,
like a gong unsounded in 
a Buddhist’s garden,
or a dewdrop clinging to the leaf.
