Snapshot of Sweet Salvation by Scott Thomas Outlar

Cheers and thank you to Melanie Wolfe and Inigo Online Magazine for publishing my poem “Snapshot of Sweet Salvation” recently…

Grass stains in my mind
where I tripped through your thoughts
for a flash, for an instant,
for a moment
captured (click-click) in time.

Big hope on the wire
where birds balance their souls
with a feather, with a fire,
with a heart
fluttering (kiss-kiss) across the scales.

Rain drops through the sky
where the winter takes aim
with a shiver, with a shake,
with a dose
melting (drip-drip) on wet tongues.

War hawks on the rise
where the old gods have fallen
for a ruse, for a hoax,
for a hope
cutting (snip-snip) through illusions.
