Clearing My Mind


IMG_20150321_190906_127-1

Can’t stop glancing, Wondering,

Hello?

Can’t stop clicking, Looking,

Are you there?

hundreds of miles, in a second

to get there,

fingers aching, to send

heartstrings to the universe,

waiting, agonizing for some reply,

Instantaneously Nerve-racking

symbol keys, wanting to smile,

Wanting to make hearts,

Make love in cyberspace

Quickly with two fingers, and sometimes

My thumb, over thousands of miles

Wanting to know why

You are silent.

 

And now my phone is off

And words are scrambling out of space

Detaching from an exterior sense

And turning inward

To clear my mind

Of all instants

Of hearts and smiles

And I Love you’s

Spattered expectantly,

ambiguously

 

My heart wants to be filled

With your intentions

Words

And broken phrases

To fill the gaps,

A chinking of cracks

missing you

Wanting to kiss you with

sleepy words

Curled in bed yearning

Like a cat

In a dog’s world.

Wild Swan Cry

She steps away from chaos

And the ache

That comes from too many words

Or not enough

Breathing out

Releasing

Smoke hovering

Disappearing into spring air

Blue black with night

she leans

Her shadow reminiscent of daylight

Her soul drifting in starlight

And the sound of wild swans

Crying with urgency

Breaking the silence of darkness

Like her heart

Wanting, needing, knowing

Soaring in a timeless movement

She is arriving, migrating

Like her thoughts

to a warmer place.
