A touch remembered…

My skin…

memorizing your fingertips

as my soul

forever remembers

your touch

She hated mornings

the startling  buzz of the alarm

shattering silence


with each fumbled slam of the snooze button

yet always chose the opening shift at the small counter

where morning people

greeted one another

with smiles

and laughter

were not hurried

complaining about the wait

they brought the sun

into a fluorescent room

easing her into the day

in a way the alarm never could

It may not be my words, but my story and that of so many others beautifully written

“Hi Mom!” she said. A friend of my daughters whom I was meeting for the first time. I smiled and gave her a hug through the car window. She had a brilliant smile and shining brown eyes. “I don’t have a mom” I wondered silently if she had died, sadness swept over my face as she then said “She ran away.”

Where do Moms run away to? Are they happy there or haunted by the family they left behind. Does she see her little girl in dreams, wonder how she is? Does what she ran away from protect her from pain each time she looks into a girl the same age or when her birthday rolls around? I gave her a hug goodbye, wishing I held on just a little bit longer. Once for my “daughter” and for the mother who ran away.

Each touch of thought

 a note of his melody my soul plays to stars

 Constellations rejoice in the symphony

a beauty he could never see

 Sky blue paint flakes at my touch revealing aged oak

as my fingers trace inside the worn deep grooves

I wonder

What lies beyond this windowless door

I rest my head against the grain

listening to wisdom of ancients spoken in foreign tongues

a language unknown to me but understood


sharing secrets mists whisper to trees at dawn

Placing my palms flat against it’s surface

Vibrations of knowing pulse from within

begging me to open this portal

To remember light that has been forgotten

(un) known

through a busy life lived with closed eyes

My heart open

slowly, I slide my right hand down the weathered frame

reaching for the hammered iron handle

I depress the latch

to discover the gateway


What lies beyond the door

Transient dreams

This sky holds me hostage  as I watch clouds shapeshift with my thoughts

 Or do the clouds shape me  with their transient dreams held

Hello world!

This is my first post on my first blog.  I will be documenting my second coming of age…  a self reclamation after devoting my life to raising a  family.  This is my flight within to discover who am I and how did I get here expressed through random thought, poetry and photography.
