Monday Poem: The Frozen Fields

The Frozen Fields We drift through mists that hide the day. The night will close in on us, and the cold Will make us huddle protectively inside. The rain will fall, almost frozen, hard Like the ice of sadness that freezes Then shatters the delicate heart of one Who has known love and seen itContinue reading “Monday Poem: The Frozen Fields”

High on Our Only Hill

High on Our Only Hill Shall we look once at those closed days We shut up and turned our backs on? Should we let them go and watch them fall From some higher tower we have fortified Against all these ravages brought by time And by the vagaries of change and happenstance. To lay siegeContinue reading “High on Our Only Hill”

Into the Promise

Into the Promise We go hand in hand and we need Nakedness and cold water to awaken us. It comes down from the mountain Where it lies through the winter as snow. In spring it flows with the promise Of waiting and we go down to the river To meet it. Together we will diveContinue reading “Into the Promise”

Under the Sky

Under the Sky When all these notions fall beneath the sky That covers us, while standing, waiting here For time to bring a deeper knowing, time we understand now why this rain still falls. We stand here looking out towards the stars, Not understanding distance, how it grows And changes over time and time again.Continue reading “Under the Sky”

No Matter How Deep

No Matter How Deep This is a hand that takes the shape of holding To take the form of every precious moment Into itself to keep each instance bright And each significant one held so close, Still clutched so tight. Unwilling to release To watch the moment falling slowly down Into the river. Flowing timeContinue reading “No Matter How Deep”


Sharing It all begins again, once more we find Ourselves still waiting, wondering if this Is where it will remain or what will change. It happens slowly and carefully now As though we’re making something newly bright And precious out of these once empty words. The time around us turns upon itself Always on theContinue reading “Sharing”

Shadows Only

Shadows Only We are shadows only, leaving No real mark of our soft passing. Leaving only hollow echoes Fading slowly between then and now. Memories are small and fragile. Lost amongst the magnitude of what Ought to be remembered as days Go by, falling one after another Into the heaping past. Lost to recall InContinue reading “Shadows Only”

Stepping off the Path

Stepping off the Path I lost my way. I stepped right off the path And stumbled down, so deep into the dark, Into that forest where I’ve seen the creatures You’ve heard all crying in the heart of night And tearing fear out from the darkness hiding So much of this our possible bright worldContinue reading “Stepping off the Path”

The Limits of the Moment

The Limits of the Moment Now there are times and places all around From where we grow into these shapes that turn, Each blowing in the wind. Becoming leaves Discarded by the trees as winter falls. We only have what falls on down with us Reminding us of home and our belonging. And this isContinue reading “The Limits of the Moment”

Beyond the Horizon of Ordinary Dreaming

Beyond the Horizon of Ordinary Dreaming In motion, dreaming on some wide far seas A breathing wave that lies below the blue Slow undulating restless sheets of night. She swims on, deeper into her own dreams. A floating freedom, taken where the tides Wash her towards new lands and to new loves She never knewContinue reading “Beyond the Horizon of Ordinary Dreaming”
