flowered aspects

I bleed from the trepidation within
of salt and the sand beneath

the trees skin

It’s like wondering, and wandering
around the needle of a haystack

rightly sized and trimmed

with a beneficence of hope, and
a ladle made from the love we once formed

Is it possible to love this much, and not bleed more?

I don’t think so either.

For, it’s in the form of the fountain
where love gets lighter

living beneath the breath of this struggling architect, and

the love that lives within
the next steps of his flowered aspects

I was excited to learn yesterday that my poem, The Seas Adoration, was nominated for June Publication of the Month at Spillwords Press. Thank you to Dagmara K, and the team at Spillwords for their continued support; and my deepest thanks, gratitude, and appreciation to all of you for always being here, supporting my work, and being magnificent friends.

alight and aflame

displays are on the screen
and behind them are clouds seen

as mysteries continue to pour into me

of a love lingering in the rain
specks of dust are always the same

tiny fragments of being, they came

to me at last
while I let my heart open to the possibilities

of you, my love
dancing into the night, alight and aflame
