RUNNING THE RACE

We are water in a great river. Each with a clock buried deep within as we search for a place not yet seen.   We move in flocks and herds, down roads without numbers, climbing stairs to doors unfamiliar.   There is a calling within a few.

CHOICES OF ME

The dreams of me chased the years from my paths. Directions wrong turned. The failing of doors to open. Places I should have risen in, claiming the rights of me, applauding with hands upon my arrival.   Lights left on. Messages unanswered. Towns without names or faces familiar. The roads I know have beaten their … More CHOICES OF ME

SEEDS OF DIRECTION

CURIOUS HANDS

A morning breeze stepped through the open window, lifting curtain edges and touching walls like the hands of a curious child.   The fragrance was fresh like laundry line dried under a forever sun.   In bed, the cotton blankets owned me within a twist of warm compassion, protecting me from the world beyond my … More CURIOUS HANDS
