Dawnell Harrison- Three Poems


Love unties the dark nettles
Of the night as the twisted

Hours lose twined noise trailed
In the oak trees.

Love unbolts the locks
Of every heart beating its

Thump thump in the weary
Hours of a strung-out night.

Love unravels the strings
Of the soul in the brambled

Plenitude of an endlessly
Starry sky.

No sun shines

Luminescence cracks where
No sun shines.

Where no rivers run,
The waters of the soul pull in

Their tears.
Twilight shines behind my eyes

As the earth cries to be loved.
The earth is barren and without

In this wind-strewn night
Searching for its heart's sleeve
To bare its soul upon.

Roots and marrow

By the roots of the stars
And the marrow of the moon

All go quietly into the long
Silent night.

Sparrows do not stir and
The lake is like a sheet

Of glass as the indigo night
Lays down its transgressions

And opens its arms to cradle
All of those in need of its magic.

I have been published in over 100 magazines and journals including The Endicott Review, The Journal, Fowl Feathered Review, Jellyfish Whispers, The Bitchin' Kitsch, Vox Poetica, The Tower Journal, Queen's Quarterly, and many others. 

Also, I have had 3 books of poetry published through reputable publishers titled Voyager, The maverick posse, and The fire behind my eyes.  Furthermore, I possess a BA from The University of Washington.
