whispering sweet nothings

she gently placed him in his crib

as his eyes fluttered and closed

for the last time

a moth flew in my tea

when i wasn’t looking

sometimes life is like that

nothing else matters

I’ve looked at life

from both sides now

been tangled up in blue

and still,

my dear,

some-how

the only truth

I know

is you

daffodils

silently trumpet

the new moon

that crept in

softly and unseen as a

cat on padded feet

morning

 

morning has crept in

on slippered feet

without disturbing the silence

or piercing the darkness

palms pocketed

privately pondering

perplexing problems

petrifying past programming
