A Revelation

It is six a.m.; the quietest time of day It’s when I think of you   The light is softer Cinematic and still, encouraging and lovely Coaxing me to chase memories   I spent all these years waiting for a hero And even in the most difficult chapters of my life, I believed Someone else should hold the power   It is six a.m.; … Read More A Revelation

and sometimes we miss the beautiful truth too busy polishing dusty lies   ~ we shall see

About A Door

Tears slip behind doors. Slammed. Sorrow’s shelter from Storm. Love reigns behind doors. Quiet, stone still. A soft head against a shoulder. Doors close. Locked. Listen as our footsteps flee. Doors whisper, tell the stories of a life.   I’ve fallen hard for old doors. Chippy paint, cracked glass, hand-hewned architecture . Bespoke. ~ A Sunday Moment • Photographed  by my sister x

Fathers and Daughters

  I’ll cradle you in my arms like a small child sleeping Holding fast to your lost flesh Your once muscular body, feather- weight, gone Your heart beat, silent As I carry your ashes home Where is home? An island, Vancouver, Toronto, Australia? It is anywhere we were, anywhere we are.   It is time to set you free To know with certainty, you’ll … Read More Fathers and Daughters

Autumn Light

Kissed by autumn’s softened light I sit at my desk Writing, wondering The moment simple, quiet Surrounded by words and thoughts Tucked away memories A gentle sadness, softened by time Rustles As I cast a spell of silence and peace   The wind whispers your name Rock a bye, rock a bye Siren’s sing you home Rock a bye, rock a bye To a … Read More Autumn Light

Midnight

You were born beneath an ireful star, launched into a destiny predetermined by a past. So, it is fitting that I wait for your arrival at the darkest hour of night. In dreams, I am certain you return. It is winter’s cusp, a time of confusion and crossover. Hail mixes with sunshine. Green shoots wither with frost. A time of sorrows passing and joy’s … Read More Midnight

Anchor

You anchor my heart Weigh it down Heavy, thumping, stone still   Leaving behind a ruffled mind Sleep eludes me You steal dreams like a thief   Your words rustle round Encircling, blowsy, gone Maddening beats, false whispers   Left me to evermore wonder Did you care? As you kicked me to the ditch ❤  

Tears

rainy day steaming coffee, pelting rain, pinging taps aluminum eaves veiled in grey, softened light, beauty seen through tears

For Him

For Him   Every haunted autumn, Grace recalled a particularly beautiful moment in time. Stepping from the car to behold the glorious splendor of the colorful landscape that surrounded her, she paused to survey the unfolding scene. The sun cast a low light; the shadows ominous, darker, stretched longer, slightly sinister across the manicured lawn. Grace glanced up; a canopy of leaves, resplendent in … Read More For Him

To Walk Away

To walk away from where you came from is a frightening action. So much of your being, unbeknownst to you, tied to DNA, blood lines, loyal ancestor’s toils, stories shared, the memories, beautiful and bitter-sweet. The alluring moments linger, testing strength and will. They coax and bind you to your past. The bittersweet ones? The answers you search for, never come. This is your … Read More To Walk Away
