#NaHaiWriMo 2017 – day twentyfour

a weight is lifted
conversations full of hope
learning new dance steps

*

magpie skips on the path
looks at everything but me
blinks and turns its head

*

the pen remains capped
papers scattered on my desk
i drink my coffee

#NaHaiWriMo 2017 – day twentythree

the trick is to know
when you should use questions 

and when statements

#NaHaiWriMo 2017 – day twentytwo

so many stories
written on skin and eye
the body’s perception

*

sometimes, just sometimes
there are answers to prayer
not merely hoping

*

who would have thought
you would look so beautiful
so naked

#NaHaiWriMo 2017 – day twentyone

the sun on my face
feels like the smile of God
it is all i need

*

discovered purpose 

the plan inscribed within bones 
your measured pace

*

i’m tired of waiting
i have better things to do
the magpies dance

*

all that drama
long procession of pain
voices and gestures

#NaHaiWriMo 2017 – day twenty

sitting in silence
we fill our heads with words
all that reading

*

skin touches skin
in the wet early morning
our bodies in space

*

i feel the tension
turn and turn and turn again
be anxious for nothing

*

just a few moments 

engulfed in light and breath 
our bodies suspended
