dancing girl

... she dances in the driveway, sun creating a long shadow foretelling the woman to come. the song she sings  would not be considered  appropriate for joyous dancing by all who live here. she sings anyway because it seems right to her... in her joy, in her innocence. oh please, god, let her keep that heart. let her dance  always to all songs in deep joy. ...

Recommended Read expectations

... in early morning waking  there is that fleeing dream. it is almost lucid  as I feel your body  curled behind me... the warmth of my back spoon, gradually cooling. . my heart breaks  under the weight  of no expectation, of never-will-be, of truth. how do I ever sing again? . I rise from sleep, shower the hope away, put on the pretense of the day. ...

only shame

... we met love  and thought the dreams were true. but now  we avoid love. there is no truth. there is no peace. the abyss grips fearful hearts. the song has changed  and "believe" is no more. grief has been surpassed.  there is only shame.  ......

... i gaze at the moonlit sky and I am full of you. you are my meditation. I am mindful of your face, caught by the sound of your voice. the sensuality of you holds my heart in peace and joy. there is no thought other than you, the real you, the hidden you. my heart knows you and loves you now. there is no yesterday. there is no tomorrow. you are...

moon shine

I hide... every day. from hurt, from love, from myself. when my body longs most to feel your breath, to share your space, to be owned by you, I remind myself  why love cannot be, why joy is perilous,  why I will never be enough. the full moon breaks  into a million faceted pieces  and falls from my sky. .......

. Dreaming of your face Your mouth Your gentle laugh Has become an incompletion. This hunger draws me closer To the precipice And a nightmare of unwise wanting. Memories of sweetness Cannot feed my heart. I am torn in the effort To understand this silky binding That tethers me to Stony bareness, So near... So far. You draw away in the gloaming, In...

Hopeful dreams draw me near. The thought of your hands .....caressing, .....soothing, .....loving, Makes my mind race Beyond wind-chased clouds. Is there something more than love That births dreams of beaches And bodies heaving in sweaty contention? My fingertips slide over burning skin Pulling you into my Warmest, Most welcoming Imagining. Your voice sings a song of...

Recommended Read Note to Self

You are broken .... but you are enough. Remember this as you wish for the .... life .... love .... language that belongs to another. Stop adding new cracks to your fragile soul through flagellation and words that you have deemed are your just dessert. Rest in love you know. Trust the moments. Tell yourself over and over .... you are worthy. ...

Some days I am the poet drawing pictures of moments with words poured out like spoonfuls of falling light. The written phrases may, or may not, be diluted by those that follow. My terrified heart often tries to press darkness into the light, to repaint the revelations and disguise them. Some days I am the poem, flowing out of a spring of crass beauty. In this stream ...

Editor's Pick Lullaby

“The play is the thing!” and there we were. Lights dim. The orchestra being itself. The actors being someone entirely different. All was as it should be. The moment was perfect. A mini-vacation.... the first outing since the funeral. Nearly grown children sitting one on either side of me. The Godspell of Stephen Schwartz provided laughter along with quiet moments. ...
