petition

I would like to petition the universe
to return my brother in law to us
to bring him back into
our lives
to stop our broken hearts
to end our sadness
please
honor
our petition –
you took him away too soon
you stole him and left us
empty

this savage loneliness tears into my heart searching for a partner to do its bidding but none is there

dusk

dusk
one letter from dust
something you must clean
dusk
sun going down
colors of dusk
unfortunately caused
by pollution in the air

beckon

I would
so love
to
beckon
your love
home to
my heart
where

beckon
you
back to
my eyes
my lips
my arms
where
you belong

The view form here
is fogged by an overwhelmed brain
but i know it will clear soon

stepping away
to view
with
clarity

centerpiece

centerpiece of my father’s family room
Fox News
centerpiece of Fox news
Republicans
Centerpiece of my state of being
astounded by what I cannot help but hear
Excuse me, I need to leave the room so I can go in the bedroom and scream!!!!!!

marble

that I was made of marble these recent days, Michaelangelo’s marble, so that “I” was still inside but hidden, conceivably from Hughes’ “too rough hands of the world”

hearts

so full of rooms and corners and shadows and light, ready for new love, protective shelter for nurtured love, and keeper of old love

tires

my heart tires
of
hearing the sadness
of the past
of the present
of your days
and your years
as I try
to
bring
some balance
of
joy
to the present
to the future
of your days
it tires
my
heart

warned

ominous word
that threatens
the recipient
and carries
when spoken
a failure
of the giver
to
have
heart

convinced

I am convinced
so final
so closed
with no possibility of being
re-convinced
of something else
entirely different
from what you were
initially
entirely convinced

small and large
at the
same

through which
you CAN

necessarily

open

to
possibility

Blank, open, available, possible, choices, fill it up;

Like your life.

honest

honest, a word that is over used but at it’s heart , the intended meaning, the depth of the word is purity; purity, truth, and yet it seems so elusive to many.
