wild and free #1

I spoke into the silence
of an ancient winter wind –
I gave of every secret
willingly
assured of her allegiance
far beyond my dismal days
– would gather
me across eternity

names I have surrendered
the taste of memory –
remnants of a language
once I knew
making my confession
to an everlasting love
– endearing me to places
wild and true

I wonder where she whispers
to the mountains
to the shore –
with graces not so different
from my own
a valley grown with purple sage –
a garden’s rich perfume
– carries me to places
I belong

. . .

for every time
you left me
beneath a cobalt sky –
was another
when you taught me
how to fly

for every hurt
I carry –
a memory of trust
another place
awaited –
just for us

for every chance
worth taking –
were nights I grieved alone
– yet love is all
I really need
to know

for every sigh
another fell –
moonlight to my skin
for every time
I found you here –
I let you go
again

. . .

more than years ~

will e’er there be
a dream too small –
or warmth left unimagined
as trade for love –
we waited more
than years

as witness
to some other dawn
where once we gave a promise
returning life –
from moments
scattered here

remnants of
a million lights –
stars we called by name
vows we made
ten thousand years
ago

another time
the heart decides
each coming back to love –
reminders of
the only truth
I know

. . .

yesterhere

wonder sits
in empty sinks
as proof of my surrender –
a cloudless blue
denies the call for rain
memory returning
of a day I knew you well –
wishes made
another to remain

solace bears
a single touch –
beyond the want for leaving
lines erased
by all we dared to dream

loving arms to wrap around
souvenirs for keeping –
blessings for the journey
stretched between

for all I am
this little known
as truth again becoming –
a way beyond
the circumstance of will
as want for nothing
time is left
with moments sweet
(remember)
hands –
almost forgotten
how they feel

. . .

from this place
of reverence –
a breath recalled anew
each taking back –
to somewhere just beyond
the depth
from which emotions rise –
a prayer I know by heart
reminders of each truth
I lingered on

forsaken to remembrance
as distance falls away –
ferried out across
a boundless sea
to a home
that suits my longing –
grace when I am lost
– love returns
with strength
to carry me

. . .

was not for life
I waited –
or a memory restored
but for love
I might have dreamed
a moment more

is death
an indecision
or just the end of all I know –
how sweet
the resurrection
of fire into the soul

dare we wait
another lifetime
another birth –
still undefined
lest I wake
and not remember
where I was
when you were mine
