shoulder

Put your shoulder to the door and push.
Reveal the secrets hidden behind it.
Gaze upon the mysteries so exposed.

dissolve

rain falls
a drizzle that coats everything
let it dissolve your stress
let it soothe the fire
lessen the ache of the everyday

ensue

there is a moment
in the early morning
as birds begin to waken from their slumber
and the drone of cars is just beginning
it is a moment that lingers
as the sun lightens the sky
before chaos can ensue
when all is right in the world

clasp

clasping hands
reverent souls stand together
overlooking the sea
wind enfolding them in its loving embrace
all of Nature witness
to their solemn rites

bowling

once, when I was younger, I used to enjoy going bowling
I liked the loud noises
the smoky haze lingering close to the ceiling
the smell of beer and fried food

I’m older now
and the smoke makes me ill
the smells repulse me
and the noise makes me want to run and hide.

planter

green shoots lift their heads
turning towards each morning’s sun
seeking the growing warmth of Springtime
each stem seeking to rise above the rim
of an oak planter

checkmate

queen and knight
and king
all pawns upon life’s giant squared playing field
each moving in prescribed manner
until
checkmate
no more moves
game over

café

sit quiet
listening to the murmur
sip coffee
or tea, strong chai with milk
nibble upon a sweet pastry and watch
enjoy the solitude
and the constant company

magenta

I look upon the sky and see not one color
not one hue
but many
in the dying light there is the color of flame
the pale indigo of night
rich magenta and pale yellow
all colors of the sunset

burrow

calico fur burrows beneath the covers
a soft rumble trying to rouse me
from deepest slumber
“feed me” she meows
as I reach to stroke her side sleepily

cliffs

high above the river
on cliffs of pale gold and green
stands a woman garbed in hides
her hair like flames wreathing her face
her lips moving as she chants
speaking words of power
to her gods

metro

She stepped out onto the sidewalk, having taken the metro train in from the suburbs. He said he’d meet her at that little coffee bar. He said to come, and they’d talk. For the first time in months, he wanted to talk, and she wasn’t going to miss out on getting some answers.

mumbling

over in the next aisle
I heard mumbling
then laughter
loud and raucous
then more quiet discussion
and more laughter

early morning conversations
shouldn’t be so exciting

leverage

each moment that passes
I gain a little more leverage
develop a stronger foothold upon the mountain I climb
at which peak I hope to find
myself

geometric

yesterday
we discovered that we do indeed
use all that awful algebra we learned in school
we give tips
we figure out fractions
we portion and prepare
but all those geometric proofs
those strange theorems and shapes
we hardly use those

branch

pressing aside the branches
I walk into the grove
feel the calm surround me
feel the earth and sky enfold me
in a protective embrace

my fingers brush the bark of an ancient oak
feel it greet me with a lingering warmth
from the day’s passage

welfare

I sit here
sad
missing a love of my life
caring for his welfare
for the state of his heart
for the state of his soul
wondering if mine has even crossed his mind
I wish I knew
I wish we could talk
if only for a moment

dashboard

paradise by the dashboard
lite
boy meets girl
boy likes girl
boy tries to bed girl
girl resists
“do you love me, will you love me forever?”

trench

first you
dig a trench
not too shallow
deep enough to give shelter
from warm spring’s baking heat
but not so deep that the sprouts get lost

flour

her hands
dusted with flour
wipe at her brow and keep working
she takes a moment
stares out the window
at the finches
and the cardinals
calling to her in song

vines

constricting my heart
vines tangle and turn
threatening with thorns to rip and tear
but I will grow stronger because of them
I will stand strong
and tall
allowing them to enfold me
becoming my armor
not my walls

bagel

today I read
that someone has developed
and egg sandwich with a doughnut for the bread
that’s just plain silly
why use that sweet mess
when all you need
is a plain, soft bagel
some egg and sausage
and a tall glass of orange juice

smudge

it’s there if you only look with open eyes
instead of closing them to emotion
a faint smudge upon my cheek
a delicate reminder
of the past’s lingering pain
and more recent hurts

plague

memories linger
swaddling me like a cocoon
binding me in place
a plague of self doubt
worry
heartache

from this I will free myself
I will rise from the ashes
reborn into myself

bronze

I have never worked to excel in my life
never gone for the gold
never reached for the top of the ladder
I have, for the whole of my life
settled for the bronze
allowed myself to be mediocre

wheat

this is a process
like separating the chaff from the wheat
removing the parts that don’t work
and keeping only the bits that do
or perhaps, those that will
in time

tornado

at my heart the thoughts whirl
a tornado of possibilities
unsettled
waiting for the stillness to come
after the storm

destined

It is something I have been wondering
was I destined to be this woman
or is this simply the creature you made of the clay of my psyche?
Was this the truth of my soul
or was this woman molded of your desires
your hopes, your dreams?

calamity

This breakup is the greatest calamity
of my years
a preponderance of sadness
an avalanche of emotion
threatening to crush me under its impossible weight.

bricks

one by one the bricks making up the walls of my heart are pulled away.
one by one you watch as I pull them from their once-firmly mortared places
and peek into the holes they leave
fully expecting to witness again the horrors they once sheltered me from
