entry picture


Slatted blinds

cast sun drenched lines

that slowly creep 

to wake still minds


and rousing them

with fresh shed rays

are angled open

revealing days


unfolding all

that lies before

the fiery globe

our hearts no longer aching

the knot of want un-done 


And in that golden sunrise

we buried searchings pain

to view the world through new eyes

never glancing back again

A sun behind a cloud.

I heard you still

un-suppressed by your own will


you filled my seeking heart

so much so

you forced it start.
