rarity, I find

I watch as the rain comes down heavy Luckily abandoned Lucky for us Roof still sturdy enough Walls still strong enough Security Such a rarity I close my eyes and listen to the sounds The silent ting ting White noise beautiful Scents from the dirt and the leaves Shivers trace my skin It is nice… Continue reading rarity, I find

moves me to words

Why have I suddenly found this so difficult Doing the thing I think I do best Doing the thing I feel is my calling My soul's purpose Not writer's block But soul block Not the lack of things to say Not a lack of words to use But a lack of desire To beat the… Continue reading moves me to words

Darkest leaves, Brimful

Knocked off my feet rough and tumble caught as if by some voracious Predator breath forced from my body A Rush of Blood and fear and excitement the feeling of long hair on my skin The Scent of her her my her "my princess" I open my eyes to see her atop me hair the… Continue reading Darkest leaves, Brimful

Teeth/Mother

Shuffling steps Leaving toenails etchings In the dirt With each movement I stare at the hide satchels Fastened to belt and hip The jingle jangle Bone to bone clacking I shiver My babe cries Sleep will not come for her My Estrella Dark hair falling to knees Seasoned generously with glittering gray "The mother" they… Continue reading Teeth/Mother

gods’ eyes fall

Sigils and signs Giving protection Mother's talisman Father's rope around my neck Markings of magic Of the gods Trees whisper the names of my ancestors Telling me this this right now is where I should be leaving my cave home the hill in front of me it's peak too high to see the place where… Continue reading gods’ eyes fall

coming home

The leather squeaks as I shift nervously The plane comes in to land, fidgeting fingers showing the race of my mind Butterflies seems an inadequate description Turbulent, rocking, riling in my belly A flock of harried crows quarrel in my stomach Snakes and spiders and bugs creep and writhe Tap tap tapping the seat as… Continue reading coming home
