#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
