Atmosphere

File Nov 17, 9 38 24 PM

In smoldering ash
Nothing left but a flicker
Of a life that was

 Before the earth’s atmosphere
Became the human experiment

Ephemeral

Drop of Sunshine

Yellow
Delicate wildflower
Bathed in raindrops
Drying petals with sunshine
Ephemeral

Deep within the current
The fragrance of death
The fragrance of life
In all its glory

Fade to Blue

Glittering sun beams
Glissade across stained glass panes
Mercurial mood

Shifting bright candy colors
Until daylight fades to blue

Requiem

img_1024

Soft winged requiem
Heron dips an aliyah
Coming home to roost

Prayer for pain’s release
Broken body unfettered
Spirit soon to soar

Tears

Tears flow down my cheeks
Long after the rain has stopped
Puddle at my feet

Your soothing palm on my back
I am no longer alone
