while I was thinking of you

My hands are icy spines

feigning prayer.

There is comfort in the

silent snow drifts.

I am  profanity beneath

this sacred  sky,

a blasphemy of  flaws

too small to sway fate.

A  speck of dust,

but I want to be the moon

in a span of sky,

my eyes a back drop

for stars.

While I was thinking of you

a dove fell to earth

saved by frozen wings on

his  departure to life.

Even hatchlings break their shell

searching for  light.

  1. I’m very chuffed you decided not to quit your blog as I enjoy your writings. They’re sublime and surreal. Love that you include the German language in to some of them as well. Allows two entirely different feelings to what you do. From the chilly February of Canada I send you smiles. Cheers

  2. FAR MORE THAN DECORATION (Posted today!)

    Mention the woman’s name “Holly”

    And folks think about Christmas jolly…

    Singing DECK THE HALLS

    While a snow drift calls,

    In a Christmas culturally “poly”.

    She wanted to go away,

    Then decided to stay…

    Our Holly found

    Without her around,

    A lot of folks felt dismay!

    Her writing’s a treasure trove

    Fashioned in creative love…

    Greeting each guest

    She does the best,

    And really has nothing to prove!

    Last of all–to put up with me–

    Requires to the Nth degree…

    Kindness unbounded

    From a guy who’s hounded

    His share toward insanity!

    Love her romancing her–no–

    But I love the rest of her so…

    If I was available

    She’d be assailable,

    Why a guy hasn’t–I don’t know.

    I fervently wish she can–

    If she wants–to find a good man…

    Whatever she needs

    With my Father I plead,

    That she may not leave us again.

    Some day, of course, many will,

    When blogging won’t pay bills…

    Or another medium

    Makes better comedians,

    Then will our blog go still.

  3. The multi-media mermaid
    With a wisk of her tail
    Does poetry handily
    While popular musicians wail…
    Her mastery is magic
    in art and discussion too,
    I’d make a point to believe in mermaids—
    Miss this one and you’ll be blue!
