Woolen Blankets

feather-soft, I trail fingers through waters deep and wide reaching beneath the surface touch all the real places covered by your depths cupping my hands I taste, with greedy lips all the things you never say (are they for me, your words?) inexplicably, I know you, feel you verses weave and wend picking up the […]

Spirit Rift – Collaboration

Sand grains massage our feet, Waves hit our ankles, toppling our sandcastles No, we’re not sad, but we’re definitely a little salty, Literally — our toes watered, sand-drenched-deep In the warmth of mother earth’s caress — Absorbing all that we can sea Past the sun-kissed vanishing point To us, the Sun sets how it rises; […]

A Vision I Had

I see you on your knees, as if in prayer or supplication, you are nearly weeping and there appears to be a heavy burden weighing on your shoulders and hands now a cloud descends, covers and engulfs you and the mist from the cloud coats your skin and covers your beard like dew and you […]

Would it be to your peril or your salvation? There are risks and there are rewards to that line. You know you can’t straddle it. […]

Across the Table

How many times had they sat opposite this very table from one another? Dozens. A hundred? They had been friends for years, him and her. Seen each other through thin times and thick. Friends. Good friends. She through a divorce. He through a massive breakup (though he would never tell her what all went wrong […]

I Can Fly

I can fly It’s really not that hard I just lift up off the ground and do it I can fly Gravity really doesn’t affect me Unless I want it to Then I softly land and allow it to hold me The view is amazing The air is crisp cold and clean I can overcome […]
