dare

Dare
to lean in
and feel this breath
against your skin
it will not cut you
like it does me.

breaking


Outside the window,
rain falls silently .

Inside my ears,
a breaking heart pounds.

growth

Realizing like the Cicada
that growth only comes
when you let go
of the past.

making promises

Late summer sun
clings to the velvety underside
of stiff Magnolia leaves
making promises
autumn is bound to keep.

desire

Autumn winds wind their way
through limbs
tangled branches swaying between
moon lit sheets and the musk
of earth's endless desire.

old oak

Morning sun's fingers
stretching long across the lawn
do not reach me
here in the shade
of the old oak tree.

3.10.2017

Slender and elongated
her piney shoulders wrapped
in evergreen needles
a bouffant boa
swaying gracefully
in even the chilliest breeze.
