Shadows of Change—A Found Poem

Published April 3, 2020 by kdorholt


Shadow of Change

The landscape spoke

roaring hollowly—


bare and sere—

twisting around the world.

Everything has changed.

Shutters closed past night

as if everybody died— 


(Found poem fromAnne’s House if Dreams by Lucy Maud Montgomery)

This blackout poem is written from Elizabeth Glasskell’s “A Dark Night’s Work.” Though published in 1863, I found words that describe spring 2020.(Kathleen A. Dorholt/NaPiWriMo 4/2/2020)


Poetry Hides

Published April 30, 2019 by kdorholt


Poetry hides like

a warm whisper

in my heart

simply smoke and shadow


a poisoned puzzle

gathering grief

a tender kiss

calling beauty

a perfect balance 


seductive and elusive 

wakes my need.

Her Magic

Her magic arms form

a cuddling cocoon

so like a

serene summer day

for a broken heart.

Her dreamer lips a

dusting of sudden silver.

Feel a certain chill

freeze the tender evening

Romance turns to ice.

Echoing Love

Published April 27, 2019 by kdorholt


In certain arms

love spreads gently

in a careful velvet fashion 

like buttery cream flowing

over morning oats

like the dulcet touching

if beach-blue waves 

onto a calling patient shore.
