How modest you are
When I tell you you inspire
The words I love you

World

What part of the world
Is so far away from you
My love won’t reach you





Reigns

21 02 2019

Mahadeva reigns
Without words or a shadow
Yet obliges art

Impossible moons
Mock implausible lanterns
Waiting for the sun





Matters

21 02 2019

Philosophers puzzle
Mostly what really matters
What it means to me





Slight

21 02 2019

Always more questions
From what we thought were answers
What we know is slight





Value

21 02 2019

Now that it’s gone
And you find life continues
What was its value





Odd

21 02 2019

Curiosity
Like an odd piece of blown glass
Not to understand





Departure

You can’t take from me
The joys we had together
With your departure





Valid

Modern medicine
Keeps me here not invalid
I prefer valid





Close

21 02 2019

Ask your every friend
To meet someone close to them
No not romantic





Cavity

21 02 2019

Is something missing
Empty aching cavity
You could fill yourself





Turned

21 02 2019

Try not remember
When your heart stopped and thundered
As she turned to look





Brush

21 02 2019

I envy the brush
That with a few easy strokes
Makes me imagine





Dawning

21 02 2019

Nothing can compare
To the dawning of your face
On that first morning





Behind

21 02 2019

What we leave behind
Does not mean nearly as much
As love we have now





Afraid

21 02 2019

Afraid of missing
No appreciation
Stems the art in you





Speak

21 02 2019

The pain that we feel
And hide from one another
We can speak in art





Chagrin

21 02 2019

We keep spilling out
Thoughts and feelings unexpressed
Often to chagrin





Understands

21 02 2019

Who else understands
What our faces mean to say
Before words come out





Poe

21 02 2019

Did Edgar Allen
Put the Poe in poetry
Or the other way





Explain

Try to explain love
Stretch your vocabulary
Write endless pages





Kings

Kings still have horses
And all the men they command
To reassemble

Do puzzles vex you
Not given ready answers
Pulp fiction awaits

To stimulate ideas
To ask new questions

Two times in a single week
Gives everyone hope

Built into the building blocks
But how to get there

You were teaching how to stretch
Then I learned much more





Compare

20 02 2019

Compare summer grass
To lying in a drift of snow
Find a way to smile





Worried

20 02 2019

We have our moments
Letting go our fears laughing
What has worried us





Far

Yes, you are climbing
Putting your last energy
So you can see far

Our expectations
Can make events miracles
Maybe disasters

Fascinates fortune tellers
And their customers

Amazon boxes
Massing at my front doorstep
Waiting acceptance





Boxes

So many boxes
To think outside of each day
Here comes another





Sailors

Lonely sailors see
What they wish yet cannot have
Dreaming or awake





Erase

18 02 2019

Empty green bottles
Scattered in random places
Did not erase her





Corners

18 02 2019

Looking for the end
Can’t see around the corners
Just accept the truth





Looking

18 02 2019

No one thinks like me
But I have to keep looking
Or I am alone





Wrong

18 02 2019

I charge into life
From everything I have learned
What if I am wrong





Validate

18 02 2019

Which beliefs are true
Who is there to be the judge
To validate us





“It”

18 02 2019

If you try to hide
Life will find you anyway
You are always “it”





Do

18 02 2019

Must I always do
A shark that must keep swimming
Only rests in death





Fulfilled

18 02 2019

To me you are truth
Everything of me I give you
And I am fulfilled





Form

18 02 2019

My body’s not me
It’s just the form given me
For a chance to live





Now

18 02 2019

Life wants to be now
Overcoming all delays
To see a new day





Forward

18 02 2019

No pain from regret
Since I accepted love’s grace
Now looking forward





Candle

18 02 2019

Where does love come from
In a world of constant hurt
Who lights the candle





Reminders

18 02 2019

We need reminders
Of our highest angel-selves
To keep love burning





Traditions

18 02 2019

Traditions are glue
Keeping what was happiness
We can reignite





Gives

18 02 2019

What do people have
That gives us our tomorrows
Lets go yesterdays





Promises

18 02 2019

One person can touch
Countless lives of hopefulness
With love’s promises





Holiday

18 02 2019

What days are holy
Holiday lost its meaning
In secular sludge





Slaves

18 02 2019

When thoughts cease to flow
We own none of our thinking
We become mind-slaves





Chord

18 02 2019

A chord can be struck
In very few instruments
Those use all fingers





Pauses

18 02 2019

Pauses in our lives
Like time written in music
Produce the beauty





Coffee

16 02 2019

Yes
We are
A lot alike
In some things
We are different
You are slow to sleep
And I go to sleep quickly
I always wake up before you
You don’t know how much I love
Count your ribs while you are asleep
Try matching breaths with yours in & out
Then let in the fragrances of your hair & skin
They emanate, warmed by soft heat of your back
This is one reward I get while you still dream relaxed
You start to stir, I rise, go to the kitchen, make our coffee
This is the way I can assure you will return to the waking world
The water boils, I pour it into the French press over waiting grounds
I get the spoon we keep near the sink, stir the grounds that always float
The strong smell thrills me, I love coffee as much, well almost as much as you
I open the cupboard door; fetch your favorite large cup; mine is just plain volume
You prefer the Japanese ceramic dark brown & faintly etched with suggested flowers
I pour the cold cream; add just enough to both cups, before my hand goes to the plunger
I begin applying the slow steady downward pressure that separates liquid gold from grounds
Finally, the plunger stops; I wait smiling in the kitchen; I hear unmistakable sounds of your rising,
Pour the hot steaming opaque dark fragrant coffee into our cups, watching it mix to creamy swirls
Without spilling, I walk, eyes keeping steady, to your bedside; you groan a smiling croaking thank you





Choices

13 02 2019

No monarch of yore
Could ever have the choices
We have every day





Gravity

13 02 2019

Following the snow
Chasing mountains’ ski lifts
Ah sweet gravity





Gulls

13 02 2019

February beach
Forgetting winter’s elsewhere
Laughing at the gulls





Sweater

13 02 2019

I am never cold
My nose lights up my heart
Sweater you knitted





Fire

13 02 2019

Sizzle snap of fire
One side hot, other side cold
Close my eyes and breathe





Forever

13 02 2019

I have forever
No, forever captured me
Wrapped me in your love





Wind

13 02 2019

Can you feel the wind
Like ghosts rushing by the birds
Daring them to fly





Loved

13 02 2019

Everyone is loved
Whoever has a breath of life
Can let it blossom





Justice

13 02 2019

Trickery of Djinns
When prisoners of greedy
Gave more than justice





Back

13 02 2019

Many Jasons lost
Wandered through daunting trials
Just to get back home





Conjured

13 02 2019

The conjured Helen
Led Troy to destruction
With magic beauty





Chosen

13 02 2019

Odin’s Valkyries
Lifted the chosen from death
To Valhalla





Knows

13 02 2019

A chick’s shell cracking
Everything it needs to do
It knows from that day





Next

13 02 2019

So proud of ourselves
When we hold high our trophies
Next excites us





We Think

13 02 2019

Important things, we think
Knit our brows and hold our breaths
Until Nature calls





Spring

13 02 2019

We so want the Spring
Wishing for early robins
Optimistic buds





Thread

12 02 2019

Any missing thread
Can make the finest weaving
Lose strength and beauty





Mean

12 02 2019

What you think you know
Can keep you from more knowing
You know what I mean





Shelter

12 02 2019

Any kind of love
Can shelter you from hatred
Take what you can give





Surging

12 02 2019

Your fragile fingers
Softly gripping both my hands
Surging with your love





Empty

12 02 2019

Is your heart empty
How can you fill it again
Heaven is waiting





Valentines

12 02 2019

Every day we live
Is filled with valentines
But we must give them





Yours

12 02 2019

Don’t know the number
I have of breaths and heartbeats
What I have is yours





Rest

12 02 2019

Pain’s temporary
Between our birth and dying
What of all the rest





Earn

12 02 2019

Love is here for us
A gift of grace we can’t earn
Accept heavens’ heart





Ignore

12 02 2019

We can see ahead
When others are behind us
Sometimes they ignore





Up

12 02 2019

We are here to lift
While we are up to loving
Others who are down





Cling

12 02 2019

I get disheartened
That’s part of being human
I can’t cling to it





Speck

12 02 2019

You doing beauty
Is that how you see your life
This gift-speck of life





Burden

12 02 2019

Decide what matters
To create more love in life
Don’t burden yourself





Ruin

12 02 2019

Sometimes people win
When no one tells them of things
That would ruin love





Stars

12 02 2019

When without the sun
Then no shadows only night
At least you have stars





Unhappiness

12 02 2019

Own unhappiness
If that’s the tree you’re under
You own the shadow





Dusty

12 02 2019

Each day a dusty step
An unmarked one-exit road
Make your joy or not





Note

11 02 2019

I see torn edges
The angry note I won’t send
That would have torn me





Tide

11 02 2019

Nothing stops the tide
Coming in or going out
It’s unstoppable





Sinking

11 02 2019

The few who still read
Give me hope that people think
That we’re not sinking





Want

11 02 2019

Some want to be jarred
Some want to be lullabied
I want you not words





Words

11 02 2019

Your style of writing
How your words link with meaning
Give me thirst for more





Spark

11 02 2019

Crashing emotions
Still alive but unfeeling
Where’s the spark of love?





Urges

11 02 2019

Thoughts you have repressed
Urges you sublimated
Still lie within you
