For Love of Hawks and Doves

There is something 
Something so fierce 
And wild 
And beautiful
Something that has been caged
Something misunderstood
And neglected
Made to perform
Made to bend
Made to yield
I am unafraid
To open your cage
For how else will you 
Fly with me

Hollowed out 
Left behind to heal or die
And I don't know which
Path to take

Shifting sands
Make for unsure footing
Better to stay 
On the stone 
Of my cave
And watch the others
Fall instead

And The Skies Weep

Fat, heavy raindrops
Falling from the darkened skies
Match my broken soul.  


Come to me
My love 
Let me whisper the words again
Remind you of
Who you are
And what you mean
Let me wash the wounds
The world gave you
With my tears of joy
Crawl inside my heart
And let me protect you 
Come to me
And let forever start
With a kiss

The Lonely Arbor

Be brave, My Willow.
The storm won't last forever. 
What bends will not break.

Days. Months. Years. Decades. 
All of it would fly by if 
I knew I'd be yours.

Across the sea
She waits
Abeyante and patient
While digital tide 
Goes in and out 
Kissing just her knees
As it rises to meet her
Then vanishes as silently
As it appeared 
Oh to be held by the waves
Oh to be drowned in its embrace
But fleeting kisses
Must suffice 
As her soul's only comfort

The Naked Heart

Alone and shivering
Abandoned in a hailstorm
Little shelter under this leaf
Until the bird taught her
She didn't need clothes
She only needed wings
