Lancaster Nights

By: Angela Prendergast

Have I told you?

Those Lancaster nights changed me.

The boy in the red mustang —

You knew I grew to hate that car —

Proved more interesting

than stories

of running through cemeteries

to escape trouble

 

A well-behaved, class act

disguised under flat brim hats and endless “swagger”

A sweet smile;

a flood light in the rain

More thrilling than nights spent in deafening, crowded corners of the dullest, dingy downtown bars.

 

You, by far, were my biggest jump to safety–

Colliding with expectations and dreams

Becoming reality

Thank you for remaining steady in my most uncertain moments.

 

-Your Angel.

First World Problems. 

 

-Individuality.

An idea omitted and replaced with affinity towards identical thinking.

-Identity.

Established through the perception of others.

                 -Selfless Disposition.

Terminology that has been joylessly expunged from souls, replaced with envy and greed.

Compassion.

A subject caught up, lost, and drifted away like stubborn waves of the sea.

Generosity

A word gone to hibernate for the winter, never to return from its gloomy cave.

-Happiness.   

Gained from ownership of material items, manifested through flashy colors and gaudy gadgets.

 

These ideals of the present are the demise of our future.

Here is a sonnet I wrote about the sun. I hope you enjoy.

Aurora

A sonnet by Angela Prendergast.

 

Morning, gleaming bright, blinding

The middle child of the great beyond

Darkness drifts away in fright

Summer flowers; delicacy grows so fond.

 

Soundless, it rises and falls

Squinty eyes, liquid tears below

A march of the day, standing tall

Kisses all, from friend to foe.

 

Bright, bold, beacon of hope

An endless cycle to return

Lambent, luminous; all awoke

Steady, lessons for each child to learn.

 

More than the size of this sphere; fervent, bold

You allow human life to behold.
