Dearest night,  I wish I had more time For your lulls of quiet  Between gentle thunder And the last drips of rain   Stars peek over the arms Of the tree of shadows Frogs honk in the distance, Beginning a chorus in  Response A croaking crescendo And a sudden stop.

I tilt my face toward the sky And welcome the rain Let it pour over the rage Sticking to my skin It pounds with my pulse, Wars outside and in Bathes me in the ferocity of  Storms   Blinding Deafening Obliterating   The drops slow to nothing Winds fall from the sky Both folding back To allow her forward   And I know her   Beauty glows inside my skin Warms my body, My...

To My Child

Your fingers close around one of mine That mouth opens in a drooling, toothless smile The tone of your cries like words I decipher on instinct Redress your stained, sodden onesies After dinner Smiling at your happy gurgle As you grab your kicking toes I watch you grow Pull yourself up and scream Beat on surfaces. Your first plodding steps Before you wobble and plop ...
