Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

That Wintry Minx

 

 

as mercury dives
a wintry mix freezes
life into sculpture

the only up side
to burst pipes spewing water
ice castles forming

sounds of a faucet
above the icy silence
drip
drip
drip
drip
drip

Weathered

Exposing the raw
Weather peeling back the years
Deep lines on her face

Crossing over
To the wild side
Another Dog Star

Starlight

Breathe in the night sky
Trees bedecked with starlight jewels
My heart feels  closer to you

Glass

12E50245-0FD1-4FE0-AB16-707A476249DC

This year I resolve to shatter
That glass ceiling that is my mind
For beautiful as the glass is
The atmosphere weighs heavily
And is but a sparkly, fragile illusion
Better to let the sharp fragments
Rain their color down upon me
Than to stay below the surface
Wanting to be flying above
