Dwell [Poem]

Dwell [Poem]

I sit here
craving your presence

I close my eyes
hoping to feel you close

All the things
I busy myself with

Seem to pull me further away.

Christmas Claustrophobia [Poem]

Christmas Claustrophobia [Poem]

The lights are all up
the Christmas tree is here
even blinking, twinkling
shining reindeer.

Stand Still

Stand Still

There are no minutes
There are no days
Time etches on
lengthening, stayed.

Can’t get it back
No clutch and release
Hold tight, run through
Sandy grains, indeed.

Constant Guide

Constant Guide

My heart is staid and true
unwavering, constant.
Set on track
course marked out–
no straying.

A Crossroads

A Crossroads

In the dark hours of the night
I won’t give up on you,
Even if there’s no light
To penetrate the blue.
