In dreams

the ocean whispers in my ears

luring me to  horizons I can never quite reach

yet know

that’s where I belong

not on the shores

with washed up debris of yesterday’s discards

just watching

as love dances

in light on the surface of the water

calling me

The beauty

in being able

to shed

what’s dead

and watch it float away

in  technicolor wonder

knowing 

a new beginning

is just around the corner

ready to bloom

Old photographs lining shelves

give me no insight

as to where I’ve been

and absolutely no indication

of where I am to be

let alone

how to get there

There was a time when it didn’t matter

days were lived

one right after another

without

a

single

thought

as to what it all meant

and dreams

were nothing more than a side effect of sleep

Only after awakening

did the dreams, not of sleep

but of soul

unfold

Where is the clarity

the still waters

the guideposts?

The tides are high

and the road tangled

with uncertainty

and doubt

when all I thought I knew once

vanished

passions blush

Where there is breath

there is light

and the love

I have for you

grows

and deepens

in the stillness

where souls

collide

How some memories

are so soft

you lay your heart on them

to remember

what love was

once

Slipping softly

Melting into your embrace

Each breath

draws us closer to a kiss

because who needs words

when time and distance stole them from us

All I need

is to look in your eyes

to translate

perfectly

what our souls spoke

A tapestry of language

woven with silver threads

that hold us together

even when we are far apart

How does

the sun protect itself

from scorch

The ocean

not drown

The mist

drift

without becoming lost

The rain

fall

without breaking

The silent storm

held

within each raindrop

spilling sorrows upon my skin

Drenching fabric

that clings

to soul

revealing in transparent wonder

the beauty

within the flaws

of what lies beneath

There is no respite

from the rain

for even an umbrella

may shield you from the soak

but not the story

that becomes a song

in a relentless rhythm

of

one another’s pain

Somewhere …
perhaps where the breeze ends
or where it begins
a field of wildflowers
rises through parched earth
to bask in the glory
of a sun
without a single cloud
scenting the wind
with colors
calling to those
who struggle
in a wilderness
to see beyond
to a place of transcendence
where gold seeps softly
into the horizon
that dreamers long to touch
and poets dream to know
Take me sweet wind, please
to where the wildflowers… grow

Naked and afraid

she curled into him

exposed

raw

expecting him to leave

everyone else did

but he stayed

and showed her the beauty

she is

and always was
