let it come

let it come
let it wash over me

let me be
let me be
let me be~

when in darkness

find the light

Wednesday, June 22, 2011


if i could spend a lifetime
walking in a field
well then, i would be alright
there is a healing power
of being both lost and found
while walking in a field
there is a celebration of life
a witnessing
hymns of love and hallelujah
and isolation enough
so as to not cause damage

oh, field
take me to a field

torn bits of wallpaper

he saves torn bits of wallpaper in his pockets.


no one can be sure.

how long do you have together?

who's to say?

is it perfect?

yes, in rising moments.

do you love him?

how could i not?

comings and goings

how to find
in the ceaseless turning of moments
one island of a moment
how necessary it is for the soul
to look at its feet and see that
yes, it is here

pushing through the darkness
i grow alongside you

you remember finding yourself on an old couch
just sitting,
nothing else?

the lilacs

the lilacs come every year

but it's not that they come
it's how they come

just beyond
what you can see

a private moment
myself and my collar
a deep breath
