Walk Away

With a crushed spirit I
started walking away from
my first crush in school and
with every step I took I
was crushing my own dreams.

The Step

in inches, she approaches
covered with cloth
of clarity and secrets
past baggage, future dreams
as she takes each step
to permanent company

Cracked

Too many years with a
broken mirror led to
some cracked conclusions.
But it was too dangerous
to buy a new one and
risk meeting a stranger.

Thunder

He speaks words I have in my head
and my anger and envy start;
He steals my thunder instead
When he tried to break my heart.

perkle

the little dog stands
on my head licking my
face as local news
drizzles from the flat screen
and k-cups perkle
into morning joe
ok i’m awake

Ashes

Dark silhouette
Reaches illumined night
Shadow figures scurry
Wriggling red roots
“Fire!” screams the colony
Wings scatter ashes
On winter trees like snow

Above

#Under the limbs that drink the sun and feed the ancient tree,
Fly dreams that ripple in the breeze
And sing across the sea.
