For A Moment


sunrise

sunrise

For a moment

The silence had roots

And clung to me like

A light cloak

With a bed of stars

Gleaming in its velvet folds

Black, purple, light

Settling in for

A deep night.

 

And I breathed,

Again,

Deeply.

 

 

Still Night Before Dawn

Day One ‘14

Still night before dawn,

My thoughts gain clarity

In the sound of rain thudding on tin roof

Like after-thoughts jolting me awake

Trying to find relevance:

The dog is restless and needs to go out.

How can I get through the day without coffee?

Today is a friend’s birthday.

I don’t think I’m ready.

 

The rain draws me back into her intensity,

Steady with beauty And birdsong,

“You’re ready. You’re ready.”
