One True Thing

One True Thing

tell me one true thing

demanding without fear

without petulance

just one    between us

what is true

escapes the moment

yet I see my words

spelled out a contrail

in the summer sky

one thing in our world

you laugh predictably

touch your fingertips to your ear

as if I’m silent

noon day heat

light breezes toss my words

beyond you sidestep

the contrails fade

my words hang

hotter than any sun

glaring    yes one true thing

don’t whisper I love you

don’t whisper always

forever is not true

so breakable ephemeral

lies spiral up

you want to say

yes but no but

I can’t    you can’t

say anything can you

truth catches in your throat

while all around us

the truth of nature smiles

bite it if you dare

swallow the world entire

you will never hold it

within you    I know

one true thing

you can’t tell me

anything

Silken Cord

Somewhere in this world or another, there is a silken cord and I am tethered to you. You are like the sun. All I want is to orbit around you as the moon orbits the earth and the earth orbits the sun.

How Dark The Sky, How Soon The Storm

how dark the sky

how soon the storm

lightening will come

the ocean makes its own thunder                                                                                                                                                                                          IMG_4894

Say My Name

All I could think of was….. say my name. Say my name. In the pounding surf, in the wind shivering the palms. In the quiet of your arms. Say my name.IMG_4893.jpg

At Last The Sky Broke Open

Windblown against the storm, she walked on. One by one she dropped the orchids, leaving a path. The clouds above her became the earth. At last the sky broke open. Emptyhanded, she didn’t care. She was home.IMG_1625.jpg
