Water in Motion

H2O  Sprinkler at night with flash.

 

Deaf in watery silence,

the Lord of Fire

lost to the winds of rebirth.

Cold

 

the blue in your eyes–
steel daggers cloaked in velvet–
casts icy shivers

If You Had Loved Me

if you had loved me
i would have raised you

a bridge over the shifting red dunes of my soul
on spider silk threads
beading with nectar
to nourish you forever

taken you on a journey
to the dark side of the moon
a freeze-dried embryo
lays buried there
not dead
but waiting
to belong

if you had loved me
truly
you needn’t have shown it
not in glaring devotionals
or the passion of flesh
not in compassion or forgiveness
you needn’t have shown it at all
(even originals can be copies
even reality can be faked
even i am not who i thought i’d be)

had you loved me
there would be a heart in my breast

Goddess Spring

Spring reached us early
trailing pink cherry blossoms,
scent wov’n in her hair.

Us Left Behind

we carry mem’ries
hot chocolate and oreos
when winter took her
