present

Not rushing into the future
as the past seems to arrive
before I've even finished
the present.

capacity

Leaves fall, rain dances,
snowflakes flurry,
falling granules of sand.
May this life be lived to capacity
before the final grain lands.

resonating

He pulled on my soul
with each strum of the string.
I before him a resonating note
wanted no more than to resound
in endless melody.

This life a cup
I endlessly drink
sipping, savoring, gulping
eagerly devouring its goodness
before my days consummate.

Zakopane

Snow covered mountain
awash in the light of the moon
rendering our torches unnecessary
on a crisp night of crunching boots
and seamless laughter.

whirl

I watched love
solemn and true
throw caution to the wind
hitch up her skirts
and whirl to life.
