The Light at the End of the Tunnel

Smoky shadows

hungrily lick the tunnel walls

as flickering flames dance ‘round and ‘round

their unwitting victims with skin blistered and charred

singing,  “ashes, ashes they all fall down”

in our haste to find the light at the end of the tunnel…

we forgot to read the small print.

What peace?

Peace is porcelain

Drenched in perfumed poetry

How can it be anything else but prisoner of this poisonous world?

Ending

When is the proper time for the hero to die?

I wonder

Again

Dancing with my loneliness

Rifling through words in the dark confines of my mind

Searching for the right ones

to make sense of it all

and to write the ending

Rain Dance

To anyone watching she surely looked like a drunk

playing and dancing in the driving rain

Heaving and panting as she frantically twirled and screamed in the bitter cold

But she does not feel the cold

She is warm from head to toe with the delirious memory of the goddess she once was

& she moves to the storm as it pounds out it’s symphony

She recalls her mother moon and continues her own unique form of worship

dawning

She is the calm

She is the storm

She is the dawning of each new day

She is beauty

She is nature

Love your mother

witness

gentle gloomy sky

a compassionate witness

to my fragile state of mind

veil

weak winter sunshine

does little to pierce the veil

this mourning morning
