The darkness pervades the room, breath of fellow occupant whispers, tempting her to sleep, but taunting her wakefulness, too. Issues won’t be resolved in dormancy. Hands mess hair in…

There is a moment before a meeting – not of business but pleasure, not with foe – where the mind still takes pause, spirit says, “No.” It is a break in consciousness, fleeting glimmer of soul in anxious worry, so our hand freezes on key, at door, by all manner of entrance (reversed Cinders’ ball, but our glass…

Tuesday Tunes – Poetry Through Music, #14, 2015

And so, after a considerable pause… [Inspired by Yann Tiersen’s “Sur le fil” (violin intro):] This canvas, washed in shade of grey, and spattered with thick spray of agitated rain, sideways is its horizon bent, supplicating to greater force of mighty wind – pressing verdant verticals to left, to right, as horses galloping free to…
