Dawn & Dusk

The sky was flushed

with crimson light

lining the horizon

draws out emotions

from clouds

soon to turn dark

their departure

makes for hope

of blushing dawn

while holding on

to colors before twilight

two sides of dawn & dusk

one then the other

What the Apple Said

What the apple said

in a crisp voice,

‘Take your hands off me!

If you eat me

you will die.”

(It was not

an ordinary death

rather one of no life

with the creator.)

“They ate me anyway.”

What the Apple Said

Hope in the Desert

I was slipping on a mossy hillside

green against my skin

ready to slide

I am lying in a forest of ferns

green against my skin

beautiful bed

I saw a rainbow in the East

green against my skin

hope in the desert

NaPoWriMo Day #1 prompt— a self-portrait poem in metaphor— how nature and God provide

Hope in the Desert

Fill the Day

Fill the day

with discernment

new language

& the Spirit

create a spa

for the mind

& the skin

purification

of the pores

& receptors

of the brain

take in the sun rays

& maniacal rains

stand under heavens

& weepingly smile

My God

Cloth

I gave my sewing machines away. Now there is only cloth here; corduroy, tweeds, raw silks and purple satin. Someday the needle will rise and fall again, guiding thread into fabric, connecting pieces together with looping threads.

creating stitches 
holding tight this creation
magnificent cloth
