Understanding

Your understanding washes over me
in warm waves, comforting and uplifting
my soul. How do you do it? For you see
exactly what I need, and your lilting
voice wraps around my worries and my fears
to lull me into drowsy contentment.
No need to cast anchor, to fret over tears,
I can float in your kindness, for it’s meant
the world to me, to know you that you love
no matter what act I do, or my path.
You, steadfast ever, whilst I float above
your warmth filling me, floating in this bath.
You are my godsend, my treasure, my gem.
I found you at last, amidst all of them.

Seaweed

My daughter is the sea, her hair

kelp and briny tangles washing

through with dirt and starfish.

I give my devotion to her, to sit

and brush her hair, untangle

the seaweed so

She can shine, all on her own.

Green emerald iridescence under

frothy waves of turmoil.

I give my life to her, to keep

the sharks at bay, protecting

her beauty from their jaws.

Miserable

I’d be happier
for you
if you weren’t
so miserable
if the announcement
of your supposed joy
wasn’t heralded
by regressing
back, desperately
trying to remember
who you are
who you were
as you drown
sucked into
her world.
I hope you’re happy.
But I feel,
in crushing waves,
your misery.

Fear (Reprise)

Why is it so scary
for me to care?
To know
that what another person does
or says or feels
can wash through me
and crash cresting
waves of pain or joy?
Fear paralyzes, freezes time
in the most painful moment,
trapped stuck in cloudy
luminescent moonstone.
I have to
choose not
to fear him.
Or I will be stuck
frozen, now –
I have to change
and move forward.
Why not
today?

Moonlight

moonrise

Fecund russet rising sphere
calmly captivating with
her beauty and grace, she
glides slowly upwards
turning pale glowing white
blessed angelic halos appearing
in our eyes, with her shine,
as she illumines her path
calm seas dancing below
candlelight sparkles on
waves crashing, ecstatic
as she ascends
into the night.

Rainbow

All shades of one color
melding into beauty.
Carpets of salmon flowers
showering surprise
on the path.
Bursting fall leaves
are actually dying,
transitory beauty arcing, aching.
Warm rays like fingers
to melt
the trees of ice.
Frosted birds swimming through
a frosted icy land.
Ocean or cloud or
both? Blue air and water
coming together.
I bring color
to the cold
and power to the sky,
cosmic yang making love to
the earthly yin. But
there are only so many
pretty sunsets
I can stand.
I’m sorry you fell
from the sky
and I wasn’t there
to catch you.

Cytherean Dreams

Why is it so scary to care?
To know
that what another person does
or says or feels
can wash through you
and crash cresting
waves of pain or joy?
Fear paralyzes, freezes time
in the most painful moment,
trapped stuck in cloudy amber.
I hope he chooses not
to fear me.
But he is stuck
frozen, now –
will he change
and move forward?
Seems not
today.
