Snowflake Touches

I think she
is a light flurry
of falling flakes:
twirling in spirals
fluttering softly
making small shivers
With small shivers
I meet them:
small skin kisses
smiling all over
rejoicing my senses
making soft meetings
I meet her
for love of them
for love of her
I meet her shining moonlit flakes

Heart Waters

My soul sings for soft, melancholy melodies
that run in restful rivulets,
follow their own flow under Autumn’s raining leaves
My heart hums in harmony with tender tones
that sound in sighing breezes,
sharing thoughts in gentle tellings to all who listen
My heart hears and lives

Rusty Rails

Down by rusty rails
frail and flaking
over stoney steps that fell
til faced with currents breaking
Along the weary way
to crests by crumbling
under hand and step the feel
the smell of salt
the rails were shaking
Where moss and lichen lived
my soul was breaking

Breathing Earth

The lovely earth instills her sanity,
emanates bliss, breathes belonging.
in stirring leaves & smell of moss…
in soil scent & whispering gust…
Oh, to feel apart from her is sorrow!
Forgetful soul, left without:
from life-well draw a drought that never dries!
