You Are The Wind

You are the Wind - I am the Wind - a Wind that picks you up by chance, a gust, to blow you around and settle you like dust…you twist, you skid,  you’re tossed on a ledge, a matter of degrees
then into the air you fly through the trees...calming, all but forgotten, you move and bend, to scuttle off, in hopes you hold true to the end…

Into the mist you fall
Teetering, you balance no more…
Lifting, a storm, a flash of light streaks through the rain, giving your all
Leaping, you wash the sky with a reverberating roar

An errant jet stream picks you up, clean and washed you settle to the ground
You move away, away...into the night and into the day...you’re all around  

I am the daunting wind you feel but cannot see
abandoned, a tiny memory that takes you up and up
overhanging the center of gravity

A heavenly note only you can hear
your very being will sway, a beat only you can feel
until the end of time comes near

Color's Birth

Skies of blue, red, yellow
Primary colors mix

The tree leaf sprouts
God touches the surface

Changing through the seasons
Rainbows and sunsets

Light illuminates the air
Awakening tomorrows

I Hold a Candle

My voice of tribute to Black Lives Matter

I hold a candle in my hands, my rough, cracked and bleeding hands
A candle to light my way in the night, a candle to reflect hardships and tumbles
A candle to blind out all of the sorrows of twisting, turning, rock filled serpentine roads

Cold wax, hot flame, meet with violence to ward off the devil's most evil eyes
To see beyond the haunting, tempting, trusting; let musical notes come forth to sing
Scare away the dreams of night, the chill of darkness, the wet rain and frozen terrain

Young voices hear the tunes, hear and feel the heartbeat within your breasts
Stay vigilant, stay strong, stay united in song, let the rhythm strike up the band
Holding hands, shoulders and waist, keep the momentum pushing ever forward

A Willow Whispers

boughs hang low across the horizon
a whisper from a willow
the breath of a tree
a moment is free
not for show
don't let go
the bough bends
two hearts mend
