My Day

i may not be able to travel the world

i can visit installations of other places

i may not be able to speak all languages

i can learn about linguistics, french, korean

i may not be able to eat food on the streets of another country

i can find places here to sample, try my hand at recipes unfamiliar

i may not be able to travel the world right now

i can learn about it in the meantime

i can change the may nots in i dids

one little step at a time



Open Hands

dust settles on my skin

stillness is so sweet

heart’s call

melodies felt in the fine hairs

where are you, my love?

I can see you

though you are not here

I can feel you

though you are not near

our different dimensions

align and tumble

writing our dreams

into tiny things

to guide us home

Flow Terre

tell truth to me fast

then lie to me slow

declare your love

hollow words

designed for the show

only here for my luck

this I always know

prove to me then

you are aware you can grow

let go of the anger

leave it with the snow

burn in the ashes

tell me great tales

get the boats from the caches

let me guide you past whales

a tiger shines in the darkness

a dragon calls home

answer my call

use the damn phone




I ventured forth

into the sun’s path

looking for the moon

I found delights

bright, dark and something else

scattered across this room

Lifelong searching ceased

balance found inĀ the swaying of the sea

waiting in my own home

basking in the calm

comfort soothing all the edges

till they gleam

a destination only found

when travelling

with my companion of ages
