in the light of un-stained glass.

I count my breath to calm my spirit with

doors closing and hushed children.

Invocation then

to dreams and freedom

away from pretense and prose,



September 2017/ cell phone photography
Florence, Italy


I woke to rolling thunder, exploding heat

clouds exhausted in felled surrender

and at my feet the ground gave way

in one deep breath a thousand sighs

the miracle I know as summer rain.

In the cycle of death 

beyond time and space

a light 

boldly sings

an essence of forever being

and my soul remembers why I am.
