Loss

I lie alone
in sorrowed time
to pass through night
of loss laid bare
& reach the dawn
as feelings fade
& free me from
this dark despair.

Tomorrow waits

As heaven slips
into the night
& fades away
from earthly sight
tomorrow waits
to come to you
in future time,
a day anew.

Cobweb

In morning mist
of heavy air
the cobweb hangs
as spun glass snare
to lure & catch
each early prey
& so feed spider
for the day.

Sundown

The homeward swan
in late exit ripples
gathered now
by low western sun
until all that remains
is a glass surface
on sleeping water.

Wall of Glass

A wall of glass
can fool a foe
by fragile look
will stand each blow
just as a heart
when made of same
is battling
a cheater’s game.
