Remnants…..Of Smoke

A vine
wraps around a tree
as love veils itself
around a heart,
and she….
around my thoughts.

A church candle burns
until a whisper blows –
then all that’s left
is the remnants…..
of smoke.

In A Breath

In the breath…
of a moment –

I understood!

Eyes and blinks
and shadows.

A wisp of scented air
dark bark, stripped away
a softness
within the life.

just beyond a look –
a blankness
of inner thoughts.

What is, no longer was
nor to be again.

Like truth
which drips from the window sill
the iris blooms
to patter upon the heart –

And understanding flowers
despite the lack of light.

All this… in a moment.

In a breath….
I understood.

Dark Circles

When sleep fades
from the morning sky
and dark circles
smudge away –
to hide behind
the murky thoughts
of low mist and clouds
from the youth….
of yesterday.

Soul of Beauty

by my thoughts
wrapped tight
and all alone –
what’s left to do
but hold on –
hold on
until you hold my hand
and tear away this skin
exposing what is left –
an undercurrent …..
of a heart
a breath of air –
a soul
of beauty.
