Frozen Memory

I sit in the darkness
light flowing around
but beyond
my grasp

The candlelight burns blue
with an intensity of peace
as it travels through
the air

Floating antiquities
I have fifteen fingers
held out and grasping
the swirls of dust

Memory remains frozen
melting slowly and
delicately as it
turns around
and
says hello

goodbye

Thin Ice

 

cracked and broken, I fell through

my body is freezing but I

lift my hands out, warm the moon

my heart of dust plays a tune

colored air moves into my eyes

cracked and broken, I fell through

my soul, a different hue

this ice, I would like to defy

lift my hands out, warm the moon

hello earthquake how are you

a fish has bitten my cold thigh

cracked and broken, I fell through

eagle arrives right on cue

shoo him softly away while I

lift my hands out, warm the moon

my heart of dust plays a tune

colored air moves into my eyes

cracked and broken, I fell through

lift my hands out, warm the moon

Whispers

Painting by Michael Whelan

Can you hear me calling? Whispering?

 –

Whisper softly so I may hear your name, your voice, and sing along to it’s melancholic melody. Whisper softly so I may look into your soul and see your grace .. your love .. and your honor.

 –

Can you hear the sound of your soul dying? Or does it whisper to you from across the room? In the stillness of night, I cry out your name. Do you hear my grief? Do my thoughts sound like screams in your mind? Do you understand my confusion and my fear? In the stillness of night I hear you calling. I roll over, but you are not there. I open my eyes, but I cannot see you. My chaotic thoughts are the fuel that feeds your fire; they are the food that fills your empty stomach.
