submerge

Rushing down to the water's edge
to submerge myself in the ocean's water,
the earth's veil, the Narwhal's realm
for sweet rest - an endless sleep.

Cello

Drowning in notes so blue.
Your Cello an ocean deep,
a sky endless,
a hundred birds in flight,
a rare orchid bloom at night.

Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 prelude in G Major does this to for me every time!

salt

The taste of salt
in my mouth
may be from tears
I have cried
all these years
I have tried
or from the sweat
of this brow
but none of that
matters now.

goodness

Filling her basket with
the sweetest of fruit
and richest of treasures
that when spilled out
she will rain goodness
on all those around.

organized

Gets overwhelmed at times
trying to keep the world organized
in neat rows with clean surfaces
and is wondering if
keeping her corner sane
could be enough.

apologize

Your voice is raw
and I want to apologize
because I know this all hurts
so much.
But all I can do
is rock you in my arms.

unchecked

Tambourines reverberate
in a near celestial lilt
prompting heels
and mouths to lift
unchecked.

9.22.2016

stomping

Stomping out a steady beat
in indistinct circles
surrounded by those who
light my fire.
The night knows no end.

bursting

Coming up for breath,
my head breaks the surface
lungs bursting for fresh air
and I dive again.

songs

Bowed over, you pluck strings
delicately as flowers
endlessly
bringing sunlit songs
to my heart.

Toes

Toes dance across the floor
half run, half bounce, all heart.

star


A star spilled
from Heaven's morning sky,
fell into my arms
and called me mom.

little feet

She become more watchful
of her steps
and the paths she chose
when she recognized
little feet
followed close behind.

caterpillar


Finding peace crunching leaves,
as a soft bodied caterpillar,
in anticipation of the day
the world will see
these brilliant wings unfold.

 

9.13.2016

fly

Jumping to unknown depths
without hesitation
or fear of failing
for you buoy me up
and I will not flinch.
I will fly.

rocking

Ripping strings,
knuckles on wood,
heads rocking,
we could stay here
for eternity.

Swells

Swells
in this river,
this life,
this symphony;
lift me up
pull me under
overtake me.

9.08.2016

bare feet

My hand in yours;
unapologetically lost in
notes that dance from strings.
Bare feet brush the floor,
your skin.

promises

Awash in the morning's light
this day is fresh,
new,
full of promises
yesterday could never keep.

9.05.2016

Cocoon

Crafting a cocoon to hold you
safe and warm until you are ready
to emerge.
Bright, brilliant and ready to take flight
into the strong winds of this world.
Until then, I will hold you tight.

breath

Hold my breath
here in your outstretched hand.
Grasp it tight
for your mere presence
pulls it from me,
and I may never breathe again.
