Airborne Instruction

She had not considered the way her struggles nourished her, kneaded her stubbornness into fragrant bread for mana. There is wisdom in challenge. She had not realized the way her pains would assist her, pause her mouth and still her ego when friendship called for sensitivity. There is respect in pain. She had not imaginedContinue reading “Airborne Instruction”

Personal Conviction

Sometimes in the end, it’s all about the way you bend. The way you sway, the way you play. The way you end your every day. The truth that hurts, but is still spoken. The honesty through loss of token. These are traits that build a soul without the need to bribe, cajole. The foundationContinue reading “Personal Conviction”

Ending of a poem

Have we become less then? Has time taken that moment from us, driven connections away and left me unaware of its passing me? It is like my mind knows, but my heart refuses. Dimly my head wants to hide, in covers rich with scented yesterdays, and not acknowledge the open cut that is my distanceContinue reading “Ending of a poem”

Poison tongue.

Where did your soul go so long ago? When did its knowing disappear? Why did that fragile shoulder give and let slip apart your dream? Where did your soul go? Now crimson like the blood that pours from the wounds that you inflict. Uncaring of your company. Watch out you do not sliver into someContinue reading “Poison tongue.”

Drowning upward

I am shipwrecked by you. Tangled in your seaweed. Tossed by your waves. Never certain if it is undertow, or emotion, that grabs and pulls my ankle toward you. I cannot define this crash of mine. It is like unexpected water with sudden chance of fish. Changeable like the weather, but startlingly beautiful in placesContinue reading “Drowning upward”

Comfortable silence

Like a quiet breeze you sit next to me. Leg crossed elegantly over thigh made more elegant by the lack of your noticing. The way you love silence, amuses me. Transversing the well trod pathways of your mind and memory. Lingering on a phrase remembered for only an hour or twenty. My heart lingers onContinue reading “Comfortable silence”

Learning curve

There are parts of you that make me purr lift the hairs on my back and make my eyes close into a happy slant. There are parts of you that make me growl bring my hackles up and my ears down wanting to bite your ankle. You have opinions I share with precise lazer-like clarity.Continue reading “Learning curve”

The stark truth is a poem

Chilled like a glass my heart wanders into reflections of moist heat and shatters from too much, too soon. Ah! the splinters come to lead a path of red ribbon woe straight into my tired eyelids. Wrinkled copies of beloved words that have memorized themselves into the fabric of my skin, are making homes inContinue reading “The stark truth is a poem”

Pinched expression

closed eyelid ready to roar listing sideways walk through a door and wonder as you wander just what just what just what is all this walking for? furrowed eyebrow curdled milk slippery slope like ancient silk as we tumble and bumble down down down another rabbits hole. Let us be thankful for little sips ofContinue reading “Pinched expression”

Happy Beeing me

Let’s pause and see flowers the feel of them, their sharp hues their smooth glide under feet. Taste the nectar of their inner core and bee knowing the humming that comes from deep inside exhales out our skin into a tune of contentment. Let that joy overtake your countenance let a smile slip incautiously into place, despiteContinue reading “Happy Beeing me”

Stardust on his shoes

He always thought space would be cold but her fiery passion was like the sun able, with one touch, to singe his soul and sweep away the dark side of his moon. He was caught in her orbit effortlessly spinning. Hanging on the stars in her eyes and somehow, despite himself, he felt a humbleContinue reading “Stardust on his shoes”
