Poetry by Claudette Young

Three Poems by Claudette Young


Cloudy vision, a devil’s tool,
Asking honesty for reprieve;
A convenience leading to
Wanton surrender’s loquacious
Passage through night-tme’s valiant
Bid to cleanse one’s thoughts of growing
Awareness in life’s mock subtlety.

Down by the Seashore

Beaches washed with soft blue waters,
Skies screeching with sea birds;

Never a comber who falters,
Even at sea’s foam curds,
Surf line.

Toes separated by warm sand
Squirm, feeling Earth’s wet breast

Wondering if ever my hand
could make a green wave-pressed
sea wreath.

Universal Law

Stars expand, release energies
Into voids, creating new potential
For greater stars than themselves,
Never moving beyond their orbits
Of the Universe’s center and its well
Of gravity strewn satellites.

For all of time that man relates,
The Universe has moved out,
Away from itself, leaving behind
Peeks at its working, its beginnings,
And its wonders to behold;
Defining for us eternity.
