familiar

So familiar
your hand on mine,
this afternoon sun,
the continuity of our community.
A younger version of me
would have seen monotony and boredom
where I now see comfort and tradition.
So thankful to be in a safe and familiar place.

day

With the breath of a flute
dawn breaks over the horizon
warm, smooth, rising.
Upon the blast of a trumpet
it embarks over the trees
heralding this new day.
It will never be, can never be again
and so we take in as many notes as we can
before dusk escapes on the low mournful
notes of the cello.

indelible

life's pen dips into ink
drawing distinct lines
delicate loops
bold flourishes
indelible stories

piano

Striking notes,
hammers fall,
releasing strings
resonating life.
Forte.

remain

Thunder rolls across the sky
your fingers across my back.
Rain pounds against the roof
my heart within my chest.
Wind tugs at the curtains
through open window panes.
You and I, here in the dark,
remain.

home

where will you run
where will you go
where will you be found
when will you know
you are there
you belong

you are finally home

be careful

rocks
make fences
break through fences

bricks
build walls
destroy walls

sticks
compose doors
batter down doors

words
lift souls
tear apart souls

be careful hand
be careful mouth
