Between the Cracks

I feel my insides

Mending uncontrollable notes

Leaving this place behind, a consideration

Impossible to capture every sound

Fragile stares lie between the cracks

Touching now, yesterday and tomorrow


Fade Away

Unknown scents found under tree lines, hidden below the morning mist

No further, daydreams stop in their tracks to listen for lyrics not yet sung

Glances over my shoulder, a presence that remains in the background

Bridges sway silently in the thickness of breathless air

And I fear I will fade away completely unless I feel the touch of your hand one more time

Captured Split Second Pieces

The sound of butterfly nets

In slow motion arcs

Divide clouds

And sift through words

Capturing tenderness and warmth

In split second pieces

That easily escape the naked eye

Held just for now

Savored and embraced

They are released back to the sky

Awaiting others

To be recaptured and inhaled

Shared sentiments to be relived

Connections that continue through time
