October

Rickety rock steps
down the hill
into the yard
of misunderstanding:

summer came on again
a week before November,
the sky blue pearl white,
the landscape
cream colored beer.

Locked in a Cage

Deep beneath your surface
Where no one else can see
Your heart, locked in a cage
You threw away the key
I will never give up
Never…can’t you see
Relentless I will love you
Your heart, I will set free

The Sea

I look at the sea,
feeling it within my veins.

What percentage of me
is ocean, trapped inland
by flesh –

a landscape that can
foster life and
begin creation?

the sea burnishes
stone to glisten in the sun

Tears On A Window Pane

Tears of dew drops
On the window pane
The sleep’s night
Fulfills a promise
My dreams take me
To where you are
Only the morning whispers
Silences your breath
As stirs of life
Awaken my heavy heart
To another day without you

Hollow hearts

Hollow hearts lie fallow beating. Foreign to truth’s octaves & peace’s justice. Their decapitated arms unable to embrace “other”. Hollow hearts follow blindly.
