one deep breath: another earth day

caged by concrete these
refugee parks find light in
steel, fence and lilies

Inspired by the parks of New York City on a recent visit.

one deep breath: short & sweet

Inspired by the workshop I’m sitting in today (and my friend keeping me sane):

I got no window, it is a pane.

“Where I End and You Begin”

unwashed scent lingers
on memories passionate
sleep enfolded

Pan’s Labyrinth

An initial reaction in verse:

we lose the magic
behind life and God
Each of us forgetting
what it means to believe
so we hold on to our self
so tightly we are scared
when someone gives themself
for us.

we lose ourselves in book
and film.  sheding tears for
lives we are too afraid to live.
we crumble into ruins hidden
by a concrete jungle
taking what we can
not what we need

one deep breath: color(ful)

against smooth skin a
bruise raises up, reminding
sad songs of darkness

one deep breath: spices

subtle bittersweet
masterfully confused with
a touch of pepper

one deep breath: another shelter

 

we cover ourselves
warmed by goose down and flannel
while the moon stands guard

another shelter @ a rhino walks
