A collection of poems about life

Drifting

drifting

then to now

now to then,

in and out

climbing through my

delicate web,

ready to fray

tomorrow’s heart

within today,

time has no space

it ebbs

it flows

interlace,

the thoughts i cling to

ghosts become hope

noise screams silence,

deep places

changed faces,

in and out

my fragile web

strands of life

stretched over years

in and out

out and in

to end to begin,

drifting

in the heart of my heart

and the soul of my soul

in the breath of my breath

and the thoughts of my thoughts

there is a place

untouched

a sacred realm;

unspoken

unseen

a virgin space,

it knows me

it keeps who i am

safe within

a sanctuary,

it is my core

it is only for me.

beauty-woman

Beautiful

what is beauty.

the moon above a leopard tree

indigo sky

a leathered face

pain

saxophone blowing into the night

rain,

fragrant petals crushed and bruised

timeless words

dusty books

yellow stains

broken keys

shaky hands

dark pools

silent words

stars

lovers

fire

heat

salt on air

fallen grief

beautiful

Walking the line

the line is thin

between power and weakness

sanity and madness

joy and sadness,

the line blurs

between faith and fear

right and wrong

gentle and strong,

the line extends

from compassion to unity

love to serenity

and tenderness to strength,

the line divides

good from bad

dark from light

hooded from sight.

you write the line
