IN YOUR ABSENCE

IN YOUR ABSENCE

In your absence
an abyss of silence
and sleep
my only escape.

Sleep to dream
of the past
of the future
of your presence
that I no longer feel
unless I dream.

In your absence
a flock of doubts
and sleep
my only respite.

Sleep to quiet
the squawks
the whispers
the shouts
that are all I hear
until I sleep.

In your absence
I must sleep
to dream
fight the silence
silence the doubts
in sleep.

FROZEN WHITE

Note:  I have a Facebook friend, Dara Hurt (http://www.redbubble.com/people/dar1212 ) who does beautiful photography.  I wrote this for a photo she called BREAKWATER.

FROZEN WHITE

Snow fall
fist-sized flakes
boards freeze
rocks disappear
under a blanket
of frozen white

Pond edge
fitful freeze
falling flakes
hide the distant side
under a cover
of frozen white

Silent waves
frozen time
hardened peaks
crested ice coat
creating a tapestry
of frozen white

Snow fall
flittering flakes
breaths freeze
paths disappear
delve into the mystery
of frozen white

HOME

HOME

To a slow beat
they march
heart beat of the Mother
guiding them

Bitter winds to swirl
they chant
whispers of the Father
inspiring them

Snow drifts
fence lines die
the People march
a silent sigh

Flute and rattle
cold winter song
the People’s march
so very long

To drum beat
they onward march
heart beat of the People
calling them

Home.

RIGHT HERE

RIGHT HERE
 
I close my eyes
and touch my heart.
Breathe, and release,
and know you are here.
 
I look to the skies.
Yes, that’s where I’ll start.
Breathe into peace,
and feel you are here.
 
I´ll save my good-byes,
I cannot fall apart.
Breathe, and not cease,
and hear you, right here.
 
Again, close my eyes,
hand on my heart.
Breathe, and release …
My Love, you are here.
