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

Forest Memories

I bow before trees
Below their stately presence
Stand diminutive

In honor of trees
Putting my fond memories
In a small dove egg

Wanderlust

6ECEE733-62DB-41FC-BE25-9878374D7F43

My spirit bound to earth
Body a straight jacket
That gets tighter with age
My youth flew with the ether
Those days long past
So I must keep moving
To fill my wanderlust
Or succumb to the gravity
That pulls my leaden limbs
