Afterthoughts

beneath the jagged waves my face silently slips moonlight accents edge peaks and valleys and I’m no longer fighting it releasing my final breath I’m floating softly in this cold new world sinking down into the vast depths I look above to see the gentle beams reflections of some far off light sifting through the […]

Seven Purple Crocuses

crystals coat my eyelashes and my puffed breath swirls before my face the mist runs its fingers through the low-lying trees the quiet whisper of dried and yellowed grass in the slightest breeze the grasp of winter’s white blanket still wrapped around their ankles somehow or other I catch the glimmer of the sun’s rays […]

Braided Threads

First, cold, blinded, aimless the cold of distant loneliness blinded by the mundane aimless wandering with no real reason insignificant of little worth or value Then, a blue light glimmers gleams in the distance stood transfixed watering eyes produce frozen tears hand lifted, reaching, stretching could this be? breath held And again, hope wiggles in […]
