She whispers my name... Only I can hear

A Pale Shade of White

Outside my window
Under the trees
White ice, white snow
White lace like windswept curtains blow
White, white, white
Until all color fades away
And I must surrender and finally lay
White down, white night
White cloud blankets; frozen white

I am pale now and in white moonlight do I reside
But in that white unbroken shadow
Doth the rainbow hide...

Lost In Reflection

Where The Wild Things Are

Strong Deer with Long legs
Take council in the night beneath my aged apple tree
I see them sometimes on sleepless nights
Other times I am awakened
Feeling their soft footfalls in my sleep before hearing them
The Strong Deer cease their silent whispering and look up
At the sound of my eyes opening

In Passing

This long road I never expected to see
Past the vanishing point milestone markers melt slowly
A billion billion drops of rain never counted and the wind
Working overtime to the same conclusion
The silent stars stand witness
They alone hold the key
For the road begins and ends by their good grace
Time and space
And the secrets they share
Be they particle
Or wave
