- A Place Where The Soul Rests -


                                   Frail, compact and sad
                             The old chapel needs new paint
                                cold room with stone floor

senryu- Ashes trail out with the sky

draped close for the night
film scenes of you have no end -
mourning sobbing starts

Barred Revelations

Brain rewired
The spine of prison rattles
Hearts harden

Hungry dogs
Chomp on the bars and the bones
Of his hope

He is lost
Dreams and fears confirm his tears
Time is gone

Guilty truths
Drizzle down his swollen cheeks
“God, I’m yours. . .

Lift my eyes
For your light is my way to 
Shame my foes. . .

My clothes droop
My body slumped against death
This soul swells. . .

I need her. . .
If only you knew how much
I miss her. . .

I need You
For You have stayed here with me
Patiently. . .”

The sun peeks
His sad eyes take in the warmth
His heart melts

We are free
The sky is open to you
Now Stay Strong

a lost little girl
on an sunken cypress stump
waits for centuries

Waiting for the call

Cold and ghostly pale
awaits to be called home ...
date and day unknown

Her  fourth  left finger
holds a polished gold band,
Rough is the inside.
