Mistakes We now are almost ready to begin. This is the place it starts, beginning here. We find these places and we create times From those we take with us as memories. We cannot shape these moments held so tight Into a final form until we know The shapes they should always then take beforeContinue reading “Mistakes”

The Echo of His Absence

The Echo of His Absence Her father was like a ghost to her. She lived inside the echoes of his absences Like someone waiting for something To take her life and make it begin. She needed someone to take the day And open it out for her in his palm. To show her how timeContinue reading “The Echo of His Absence”

Modern Visions

She Stops

She Stops She stops, her hunger unsatisfied By all the goods on display. Easy purchase for the empty soul.

Monday Poem: Beginning Again

  Beginning Again Out of the dark you came to me to show me the way through, out to the other side of darkness. I held your hand as the rain slowed to a stop and the sun peered out from behind the clouds. The world turned from grey to green again, as we walkedContinue reading “Monday Poem: Beginning Again”

Monday Poem: No Gift To Bring

No Gift to Bring I have no gift to bring, this morning all I have is a new day waiting hidden behind curtains I can open for you, to show you the day spread out and waiting for you to walk out into it. I can take you by the hand and lead you downContinue reading “Monday Poem: No Gift To Bring”
