Karma

An inadvertent way

of presenting you exactly

what you deserve

inside, deep, uncomfortable

slowly wreaking havoc

Windowless

20140315_103021 

Through another doorway

one meanders, lost in thought

regretting things left unsaid and undone

only one's journal really knows the truth

 

Recollection is an empty house

with no windows

thoughts turn to the unkempt yard

overgrown and weedRead full post »

Unfinished

 

20140328_170216

 and then you vanish

bringing me such joy

followed by ice cold anguish

right now I feel no warmth or joy

another piece of me fades

in my solitude

 

I collect all these

Longing in Blue

20140221_170458

Upon a closer look

these blooms are

painted on textured paper

these blue bells

hold no scent

delicate shades of blue

make up their existence

bright sunlight outside

holds no warmth

last night’s walk

was brisk

Worn

We travel in slow motion

snow is a possibility

winds blow cold and harsh

our words freeze

when spoken

 

This endless winter wind

claws at our faces

taking moisture and colour

we look ashen

tired and wornRead full post »

Reading seed catalogues

longing for spring

to really start

 

Weary of the long winter

dark days with bitter winds

and enormous snowfalls

 

The images of gardens

in full bloom

Yearn

I pray for dreams of you

by now I’m wondering

do you remember me

so much time has passed

the chasm between

us is vast

I can no longer

see the polished

stepping stones

Night Hours

During the night hours

through the darkness

I hear your voice

 

Through the night sky

hushed sounds

I strain to listen

 

The wind comes and goes

wisps of clouds travel past

as your words trickle in

In the pale moonlight

I listen to an echoless life

 

Before me snapshots

of moments lost

 

These images spread out like

ash in a windstorm

 

Longing to break out

The sky grows dark

as I listen

for the intense

silence

as I do

when sleep

escapes me

tonight I watch

ribbons of light
