liquid heart

I look up, and down
liquid heart

in pools, I drown

waiting for the sun to arise
again

in my heart

capitulation strong
and armed

with love

and light
a transformation
in kind

with the river, I flow with time

Glowing Sunrise

one, two, and three

I count in the sky

there are so many more though…

ghosts linger

ghosts of the past
linger

in my memory

with a sky full of love, dried
bone, and blood

which come

by land and sea, this onslaught
always pervades me

as I watch
the trees sway back and forth
remembering

the truth about this paradoxical life course

trepidation arising

I find you in the sun, and stars
and

in the trepidation, arising with the dawn

a feeling
like a cold, and misty day
awaiting our time

to dance
with the day

while watching the birds, back and forth
sway

Musical Heart, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Musical Heart, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Musical Heart

morning tranquility
broken and crumbled, my part

of ashes spread all over the flower garden
and within the nest of my heart

made out of sticks and stones…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

soft and supple

soft and supple, bending
with the wind

I dream

of a life given
to my heart, getting out of the way
of results

knowing
they belong to the riddle of time
freeing me

like a wind chime

blowing back and forth
making beautiful music out of sounds and notes
