Blue Roses

July 31, 2007

Long before Autumn, Long before June, I sent you blue roses Beneath a white moon. Almost six years ago, Under the sky, I watched the stars And I swallowed a sigh. You spoke of sunshine And laughter and life… I remained red-eyed, Saddened with strife. The wind of your woes was As much as I […]

Yellow

Hunger conquers. Love considers. As life concedes and pain bewilders. Anguish strips us of our shielding. Cold. Relentless. Ever-wielding. Yet we let the anguish pass Forget, and hide amongst the mass. Even I who swore to never Seek cold comfort, cruel forever; Even I found yellow rest, In the days upon my nest, Long descended […]

Xinjiang

In Xinjiang the world is dry. The mountains scrape the bright blue sky With lifeless peaks of solid stone, And I amongst strangers, was never alone. There, the oases , their streets full of trees And bagels and children, were life at its knees… Where things could be bought, where no one had seen Someone […]

I heard you haunting me. I heard my past, And the wind wanting me. I left at last. I hummed to heaven With little to lose Walking and watching My brown leather shoes, Along Spanish highways, Too tired not to smile. Orchards of olives Draped mile after mile. At the side of the road, With […]

When I was very young I knew The songs I’d sung, The color blue. I lived to love. I lived to write. I looked above Into the night. I would part The winds, and pass… And my heart Was made of glass. My face was pale But filled with fire. My feet were frail, But […]

Elf Songs

I stand alone Beside the sea. I watch the winds Who follow me. Stars are silent In my heart, And the whole world Stands apart. I sing softly To myself, Humming elf songs From the shelf. People glance at Me and frown, Puzzled, frightened. I look down. People pass me By and they Cannot grasp […]

Alone

If you should fly a million years, Leave behind your frightened tears, Escape the milky clustered sky, And peer grim thrills deep in the eye Forget your strength. Forget your mind. But pray! Don’t leave your heart behind. If you should leave your home, your friends, And seek new dreams, new loves… new ends, Leap […]

Untouched

December 6, 2006

Untouched, unfelt, unheard, unseen, Unlived, unlearned, unloved, unbeen, I’ve wandered lonely in the night. I’ve felt my footsteps turn in fright. I’ve cried out singing, to the stars. I’ve felt the light that beauty mars. Reddened rainbows in the sun Meant my worlds, and yet, not one. Shattered dreams about my feet; Shattered dreams incomplete. […]
