where are you going?


oh precious soul,
priceless
where are you going?

… speak to me.

with your mysterious vision
your body–its inflections,
its words

you come to depend
that it’s always
listening

fly now into
your life
which drizzles
like the wind, cleansing

beautiful one

come to me in a dream from far away, through smoky eyes or darkened skies.  fly…

do i describe a land or courage that only i know?

the river is near to take us
with few words it speaks clearly…

i felt you watch me as i slept. i reached my arms out
did you feel them?

you are listening… say something to me, beautiful one

a secret

on the edge of a secret
i fly

i can try to close some part of me,
but a single laugh will open it
as quickly as i shut
and a moment
can whisper a pathway

i want you to know
everything
i’m an inch from telling you

i think of you
