Corked

I dreamed of syllables,
floating
just beyond my reach;
emotions corked,
bound
upon restless seas of words.
but, I’ll write you anyway
in my mind,
pass you in glances
through eyes
where love speaks
the loudest.

Insomniac

I watched the color fade from my face,
the smile, fall; hide behind distrust.

The muse, she plays me like a fiddle,

dances at 3:00 a.m.
when there is no music,
like a stream of consciousness
never coming up for air
swept away in oceans
in sweetest notes,
tip of tongues,
deeper

than a supernatural love.

Sister Golden Hair

Walking through weeds,
he came upon a flower
spotlighted by the sun,

swaying like a willow
in November breeze,

stem bends
from the weight of the world;
bends, but never breaks.

She sets sail,
to weather the storm,
but when it rains,
it pours out

gold.

Love Letter #66- Eternal

You bring comfort
in a skyful of fireflies,
an open palm
full of wildflowers,
fingertips,
plucking petals,

“he loves me,
he loves me not.”

3:00 am awakenings
and an old Underwood
typewriter make a home
in my musings, as psalms
sweeten the chorus
of this eternal love story.

Petalled Promises

Breeze me away like tumbleweeds;
like untamed dandelions in flight,
carrying me closer to you.

I curtsy to this torrent of rain,
for, with pouring out,

comes growth;

petalled promises to flower.

If only I could bottle your light,
swallow the stars you conduct;
recite their delight from my throat,
hold them in my belly;
in the center of my spirit
to share with others, this love,

like this gift I hold;
this book you left behind.

Lost and Found

I found you beside the honeysuckle bush,
shining upon my childhood summers,

felt you in the wake of nightmares,
gentling my heartbeat, encompassed
by the warmth of you,
of your presence;

shadow in the mirror,
recipient of my prayers,
you trace my footsteps,

even now,

when the walk is long
and the road, unpaved.

Birdsong

I awakened to syllables
in musical notes
from the window sill;

a glistening hue of scarlett
through sheer bedroom curtains.

You traced my steps,
followed droplets of tears
and dried each one
with the hem of your garment;

ivory,

with shades
of scarlett.
