after hours

after hours

rain

patters in the night,

slipping

through the petals

of my soul,

watering

the curled, dry cusp

of innocence

fly away

carried away

follow the line

between day and night,

follow the dream

of rest,

follow the cries

of gray mourning doves,

pass through the

boundary, blessed

promises

promises

Released, carried

on breezes and wings,

they hitch rides,

seeking new havens

in which to settle –

these seeds of new

beginnings.

I stand

with open hands

before

swirling, shapeshifting skies

held

there by love

whispers

in the underbrush

rustle, unearthing

memories of

of storms

survived and offspring

flown

knitted together

August 27, 2013

knitted together

reaching, touching

woven as one

we inhabit this earth

grace

grace

Speak to me –

whisper the secrets

of aging,

of standing tall before

time

with the heart

of a sapling.

As the forest fills

with morning’s light,

treetopped birds erupt

in chorous; my fluttering

heart rising to

join them there.

sliding by

sliding by

The days of summer flicker

like embers

as birds flock, waiting

for that

mysterious call

to follow the sun.
