Time out of time

we spin the wheel of fortune

hoping for a happier fate

than the girls who went before


Broken Circles

Technique:    Free Verse

Intention:     Exploring the idea of paradox

so ugly in the safety
of its own circle
seeking control
exerting dominance
toxic insecurity
seeing only the round
of numbered belief
unaware of the breaks
the silent tones
of non
learn the lesson of the bee
winged impossibility
is it gold and black
or black and gold
does it matter …

Focus:     Point of View (present tense)

– present tense –
wishing for the connection
the golden line
the soft sense of communion
between two opposing views
maybe not in words
but feelings
reaching for clear sight
to look between worlds
inner and outer

breathing in the moment
and releasing possibility

let go the sense of failure
the disconnection
the broken lines of

be in the moment
even now
