wings

her wings were
paper and ink
on which she flew
effortlessly over the horizon

rusty fences

once when rusty fences
broken glass and scabs
were not things to avoid
but rather backdrops for
an adventurous childhood

Dive

there is a future known only
to those willing to dive
into depths unknown
and swim unpredictable lengths
leaving the certainty of the present
in the quickly fading past

washed

meet me at the water's edge
where we'll wade in and let
the current wash over us

mosaic

sifting through the leaves at her feet
finding pieces of her past
brittle and brilliant, that together
create a bright mosaic
for her future

everywhere

up here where
everything else seems so small and
ethereal
down there where
everything seems so raw and
tangible
and everywhere between
there are traces of where
we have been
and where I forever want to be

rocking

steady rhythm, steady beat
steady arms, steady feet
your hand on my back
your name on my lips
I could dance all night
to the rock of your hips
