Siren Song

Saturday coffee

Coffee and REM

the buzz of voices

your eyes meet mine in

silent conversation

the smile that hovers on your lips

engaging in conspiracy

your fingers find my stockinged thigh

my blush and pulse

climb 

as your hand does

unspoken wishes, flash

fire in eyes

leaning in

a whispered phrase

my breath catches

hooked deep

wrecked

aching 

for the taste of coffee

and your lips

Of snow and ice

The sun dazzles, skipping

across the snow

windows frosted with ice

crystals, a frame for my eyes

the news blares of frozen doom

we remain bundled

furnace blasting

safety indoors

shadow of heat and smoke

from the chimney

dancing over unbroken snow

silent, bare trees

sentries immovable in the warmth

the sun, a pittance

a car travels down the street

slowly

the crunch of packed snow

breaking the silence, paralyzed

by the cold

Adieu

IMG_5713

Like a wave born of a swell

another year is upon us, racing

to the shore

pulling the remnants of the previous year

away to memory

we bid farewell to the old year

a time of growth

awareness

joy and loss

a new year beckons

with the promise a new day brings

tides turning

presenting new opportunities

possibilities to grasp 

with both hands

before they slip away

with the tides…

Quagmire

Quagmire

my own design

footing lost

fog descends

repetitive motion

every thought

overthought

drawn, drowning

sounds of demise

fill my ears

pulled into smothering darkness

unfortunate fantasies

reality compromised

this wake

of dandelion dreams

The way she falls

She was a discovery waiting to happen

The moment he saw her he knew

Evocative of the unexpected scene you come upon

As you wander an unknown path

The eyes widening just a bit

The smile flirting at the edges of your mouth

Something to enrich your senses

To take your breath

And oh how he wanted to get lost

Lost in the way she falls

And in the way he catches her

Every smile

I sat upon the sand

watching as he played amid the waves,

catching each swell as I’d taught him.

With every rise and fall,

and every smile and laugh,

I could see the past years

and the pain and stress he endured

melt away

and for those few carefree moments

he was a kid again,

one who had no worries in front of him

except for whether he might swallow too much

of the sea…
