Forever is the Sunrise

Forever is the moment 
that stills me
when everything
is swirling inside
my heart, my soul, 
my mind…

Forever is the moment
that absolves me,
that nature bestows,
head bowed or not,
heart knotted or atoned. 

Forever is the moment
that holds me
so personally close,
the rays extended
to touch 
with warmth. 

Forever is the moment
that soaks me, 
in waves that rebirthe
or ripples that trickle
to my inner caverns

where I buried
the treasure
of me 
in a chest of fear,
where only the mermaids
are entrusted 
with the key
shaped from 
my tears. 

Forever is the moment
I carry with me
in every moment
I am away
from the sea.

This Is

Sunrise kisses brushed upon eyelids,

IMG_9010

Quenching drops nourishing, renewing, the spirit,

IMG_8897

Velvet petals caressing the flesh, erasing false perfections,

inner seeds in ecstasy sacrificially spilling,

IMG_5042

Breezes always joyfully willing

to carefully carry the heart’s deepest wishes,

IMG_3249

Lonely floating feathered silhouettes receiving comforting sunset ripples,

IMG_4393

Faithful mutually blooming companion, a bud always returning,

IMG_6602

IMG_5247

Upon a pure canvas, watercolors mixing,

slowly, beautifully messily dripping,

fluid, never fully setting,

in the swirling abstract showing

what each individual soul has mourned, is yearning…

This is poetry.

And art. And music.

And, I suppose,

love.
