Wishing upon snow

She looked out the window at the purple sky. She stared at the small portrait at her desk for a few seconds in silence. Then she grabbed her black purse and red scarf and took off. When she stepped out of the building, her brown boots sank into the ground. She cupped her red, cold, small button nose with her small…See More

    Sweet Honesty

    Sweet honesty

    In the air

    Over there

    In the comb we share

    One red hair

    No fair

    Said you’d take everything when you left me, to go way over

    There

    Sweet honesty

    On her sweater

    Can’t forget her

    Shoulda known better

    Unwritten love letter

    Musta upset her

    Slick slimy creep did the creep and I didn’t see and so it turned out that he’d

    Get her

    Sweet honesty

    When she…

    As

    A single tear

    Rolls down her cheek

    As

    A single prayer is offered

    A hundred miles away

    As

    The second hand crosses “12”…

    And a page is turned

    As

    An ominous rumble of thunder is felt

    Heralding the approaching storm

    As

    A life prepares to advance

    From a physical state to a spiritual one

    As

    A chunk of rock in space

    Revolves inexorably on…

    As

    On gossamer wings

    As thin as hope

    As frail as trust

    As delicate as faith

    I watched her fly

    As I closed my palm

    “if you love someone very very much…”

    A poet wrote

    That poet never had

    A diamond

    A sunbeam

    A whisper

    A love

    “…set her free…”

    Deep in that forest

    That moonscape

    That eternal wilderness

    Of doubt

    One staggered, searching

    “..if she was yours she’ll come…
