God is Waiting

The fine hairs of the tree moss,talk to one another in a languageonly they know. Years have gone since the heavybranches have felt the weightof heavy winter snow. The earth preserves herself withina cavity of love, as many thingshave fallen to slumber. Years ago when the moonlightbrought a trail of tears, Godtalked of such wonder. […]

Santiago’s Sorrow

Flute notes echo with soft drum beats, as a human soul does singTearing from a body floating up, leaving all trivial earthly things Dressed in black, Santiago, Chile, morns her dead as angels soundVineyards abandoned, red copper and steelworkers sadly abound Her City’s kindness, a handmade doll, given to this guest in tearsWrought with shadows […]

Toxic Dreams

Floating leisurely in a sailing, solar-powered glass ballSearching intently for life over the harsh endless sprawl. Beneath me fine dust and a limb from a long-ago burnt tree,I was becoming frightened as my ball was close to the sea.

Oak and an Angel

Sweat gently trickles between the aging tan skin of my breasts.Seasoned are the chambers of this heart that passed the test,Enduring each stage of suffering that came, for He knew best!
