An Afternoon Walk

Walking through the summer woods, I lose myself in a fantastical magical world. The only way to fully immerse myself is in my natural state. Bare feet sinking in the deep mosses and skirting the many berry patches. The light makes it way feebly through the interlaced branches of spruce and the occasional birch tree. […]

Softly Spoken Moments

Waking up in the middle of the night Climbing on top of him Neither of us fully awake I ride him, hitting all those perfect places Letting myself flow over him Run down his hard length All I want is to feel his release That small space of time in shared bliss And then I […]

Patience Has It’s Rewards Too

In this era, walking this world, we have erroneously come to the conclusion that we need everything and we need it now. Where has patience gone? Where has peace fled to? Where is our human compassion and mercy? Examining my own self, I know what I desire. I have hopes and dreams too. Some I […]

Clockmaker

he’s a clockmaker his nimble fingers hold a spring here and press a latch there his sharp eyes envision where the cogs will just miss and an adjustment will need to be made his quick mind thinks three steps ahead and two moves back he visualizes what masterpiece will arise from the bits and pieces […]

Tonight I’m staring at your face Committing to memory what’s already memorized Seconds become minutes become an hour Still I gaze My fingers stretch out and trace all your curves I am lost in thoughts and dreams and all the emotions that come with us I want you You fill all the empty parts of […]

Echoes

my search ended the moment I first read your name there before me in black and white I stopped dead in my tracks eyes wide jaw slack the first time you spoke my name my heart stilled paused in silence became whole (though I wasn’t aware I had been missing you) I wanted you then […]

Laying on the grass, hand in hand Together staring into the wide blue A breeze slips across our skin The longer we gaze up and up and up Deep blue calls out to deeper blue It’s almost as if we are floating Weightless, tiny but always together She sighs and I look over at her […]

From Morning to Night – Collaboration

The cold early morning breeze penetrating the thick blazer and piercing my chest, Another long day ahead of me. First thing this morning, I’m listening to his voice On my iPod, a recording of him reciting poetry, While I’m walking sidewalks, dodging elbows. A lonely drive through an overcrowded highway, A feeling of isolation even […]

Pirouette – A Collaboration

I’m spinning and whirling She’s grinning, and twirling My laughter contagious Her caphtor, salacious I twist and twirl until I fall She fists young cowgirl Crazy in love Sounds above Right down onto the green grass Left upwards into the seen path Tears are pouring down Fears aren’t forming now I don’t care She really […]

Don’t Blink

He has beautiful eyes The most entrancing eyes Becoming lost Oh I find myself staring Diving Swimming Floundering A whirlpool Spinning me around Waves cover my face I forget to breathe I willingly drown He’s my oxygen now tara caribou | ©️2018
