Moonmet…

Lonely moon
Embracing sky
Just a sliver
Slipping by

Tonight

She does not hear

Fare well…

Praying…

Rain

Like ink stains

The dark horizons

Hope moves past

Promising

There’s more

Life

Must be

Saying

Certain moments just won’t last

Without some risk,

And this-

This is what I’m weighing…

Fist

Open

Fist

Open

Fist…

The Ocean, Deep

May 19, 2017

this II
We’ve all got a bit
Of the ocean
Deep
Inside us.
Remember?
How we taste it when we weep?
It ebbs
It flows
It crashes! and rolls
It’s a worldwild mask
O’er the secrets that we keep:
Madding memories
Hidden amidst
The mighty blue
Sinker of ships,
And longings lost
With lovers’ lips
On ocean floors
Forever.
(It’s an ancient thirst
To know The First
Want
Sated by
Perpetual want
In horizon’s 
Eternal endeavours.)
And gnarled wrecks,
On the sweetest reefs,
And dances with
The water-wiling moon.
Salt cursed
This thirst
Is its own remedy
By heaven’s purpose,
Strewn
Like legends along
The wild seashore 
Of our intrepid souls,
We’ve all got a bit
Of the ocean deep
Inside
Us,
Calling us
-Making us-
Whole.

As If I Knew…

May 15, 2017

I feel alone tonight

And so I try

Again

To wrap these patchworked words,

Around, about me

And dream as if I knew

That they were true.

This Year, Together…

May 14, 2017

What have we

Got here? 

A memory

From last year.

A million miles away

We might as well have been.

How different is it now

Compared with then.

You’re just across the room

Instead of ocean.

Your voice all day-

Your face

Not via laptop screen!

You’ve always been here for me

Ready, loving,

No matter what it is

That rolls between.

Porchpraers…

May 13, 2017

Everywhere I look

I see two options

Considering one

It doesn’t stop then.

I need to feel You know

You know.

Let my heart

Share my mind’s amen.

Amen. 


The glass half

Empty

The grace half:

Full

Of time poured steady,

Slowly

Making the present

Whole

In the Economy

Of Shalom

A promise tending

Hopeward

Eve-

Eventually

Home.
