This Moment


the stars provide
an endless canopy

a soft breeze 
floats 
through the fragrant grasses

cooling our fervor

your shoulder 
is my pillow 

your heartbeat 
my lullaby

we disclose our future 
to the moon 
and he shares his light with us

after 
we slumber 
wrapped in an embrace

tomorrow 
will bring the sunrise 
and with it 
a new beginning

but tonight 
we have this moment

Puzzle Pieces


My puzzle pieces 
                                                          
I've carefully 
numbered them                                                   

Each                                                                                  
a part of me                                                                    

I see them                                                                          
cast aside

carelessly
heartlessly

Fitting them
together
in your absence

inconceivable.

Standing in Line


I watch the faces

on the street.

 

The aftermath

of what has been

thrust

at us daily.

 

Numb to

the overgrown

lies.

 

Deceptions

meant to

seduce.

 

Trust issues

nightmares

leave us tossing

in our beds at night.

 

Standing in line

praying for salvation

in the power

of our convictions.

Fool’s gold Once we held hands and we talks of the great escape. We drank expresso coffee and we walked on the Monterey pier. I savored your sweet voice and I remember. I held you like you were my love in the Winter storms of the Pacific in 1993.Lonely days compelled us to fall together. […]
