A Breath of Silence

A Breath of Silence

Not a leaf moving

No breeze on the morning air

Just before dawn with

Eastern clouds bathed in

their early morning blush

and brilliance of streaming

gold as the sun begins to

wake the day

 

Western clouds not to be

outdone bloom fluffy and white

with tips of pink reflecting from

their sisters in the East

 

As I go about my chores …

Feeding barn cats

Replenishing water bowls

And

Watering my tiny garden

That Breath of Silence

surrounds me

The one that screams loudly

that a scorching summer day

will again push its way into

surrounding yards in my neighborhood

and far-flung fields

Cracking the parched ground

Searing anything green to

crispy brown as

Summer proves again

it has total control

Dawn

Dawn Walk
Fog on the horizon
Pink tinge to the sky
 
My skin prickles
as mist feeling like
early frost touches me
 
A surprising coolness
settles in before the
morning begins to warm
 
Giving a hint of
what is yet to come
 
Autumn…

Morning Dew

Autumn…
Time of renewal
Refreshing…
 
Leaves on fire
paint the world
in colors rarely seen
except in nature
 
Morning dew
washes away 
the Night…
 
Cool breezes
kiss the dawn
and waken a 
new day…

Coming Home

Escape was all
she could think
Driving all night 
through pouring
rain that kept
the windshield
fogged mixing 
with her tears
 
She didn’t know
where she was…
where she was going…
the road sang beneath
her tires accompanied
with drums of raindrops
 
Just around the bend…
a rise in the road and
dawn splitting through
the last of the clouds
She saw a neon sigh
 
Flashing…
     gas…
guitars…
     gas…
guitars…
 
A sign in a 
sign in a sign…
She needed gas
and it was time again
to have a guitar
 
Stopping…
she felt like she
was coming home…

April 10th – This Morning

Spring…
Everywhere I look
 
The young Palomino
grazing peacefully in
his pen outside my
office window
 
Birds singing
Rejoicing in 
the new day
 
The neighbor’s dog
on his early morning
rounds before he
takes up his napping
place in the middle
of the road
 
A Morning Dove
calling…
restoring my faith
in the promise
of Love
 
Crisp air
kissed by 
the rising sun
 
All is right
with my World

Another Motel Room

Midnight…
another motel room
another town
so much uncertainty
 
The light of day
brings bad coffee
with the road map
spread before me
 
Where can I run
this time…
always on the run
Never safe 
 
Looking over my
shoulder as I fold
the map…
ready to meet
the dawn
as I drive
North

Sea Treasures

Easy morning walk
Dawn on the beach
 
Gulls fighting over
scraps in the sand
 
Lacy drifts of seaweed
Decorate the high tide’s edge
 
Our dogs race ahead
chasing sea birds
they can never catch
 
Your hand in mine
Strolling peacefully
 
Eyes searching for
Sea treasures the
night has delivered

Awakening

Slow…
Sensuous stretches
like a cat
A warm bed
in a cold room
 
No light filtering
through the blinds
Dawn is hours
and heartbeats
Away
 
Your slow rhythmic
breathing shows me
a Deep Sleep
 
There is time…
My time…
Sneaking away…
coffee cup in hand
Snuggled in my
favorite quilt
 
I steal moments
on the porch…
Remembering…
as I wait 
to meet the
Day

Sunrise

You were here last night
Just Passing Through
 
I now stand looking out
the bedroom window
watching the sunrise
 
Coffee cup in hand
enjoying my first cup
And
Remembering the days when
we relished this time together
Wrapped against the morning
chill in my Grandmother’s 
Wedding Ring Quilt
 
Those are days gone by…
Dreams and Memories
are all that remain
 
Now…
We take what we can
of each other’s
Joy…
Pleasure…
Passion…
And
Gifts of the Heart
 
Because…
You are always
gone…
Long before the
Sun Rises

Departure

Departure

A blush of

Dawn kisses

the Easter Sky

I turn and you are

Gone…

Gone with the dying

of the Night

Your fingers leave

Tracings of light as though

You tattooed my

Body with Stars

My pillows hold your scent…

the musk you know I desire…

the essence of you

left to remind me

of your absence

in the light of Day

I smile…

Remembering…

Always remembering

the Night is Ours…

Ours Alone.
