for answers currently paused,

Only to have emotions ebb
and flow when moving,

Not as peaceful as the water
placed close to me;

Restless, searching for a
solution lost in the journey.

A quiet morning
broken by birdsong gives an
illusion of spring.

Even

to better my work life,
there is always something that blocks
progress.

Showers

Raindrops pattering
on the ground, constant showers
ending this evening.

Just Us

I dream of being
in his arms

This busy evening,
loving words whispered

In my ear as we
relax in peace;

Away from stress and hardship,
just the two of us.

Withstand

My eyes cloud with
frustration when I rise

From sleep, readying
myself for a new day

Even through the struggles,
the doubt, the setback.

I must press on despite
the roadblocks, yet sometimes

I wonder how much more
I can withstand.

Once Again

Years have passed,
yet the connection
with my poetic sisters

Holds just as strongly
as it had occurred yesterday.

I can still picture
entering my mentor's living room,
receiving her warm welcome
with open arms.

I would share stories and dreams
with my beloved teacher
and fellow poets,

Spending hours with this
beloved community,
never wanting it to end.

Although things changed over time,
my journey now strewn with curves,
my bond with the poetry sisters
remain the same.

I pray that my circumstances
change fairly soon,
so that I may visit

My beloved mentor
once again.

Drop

Every piece of me
fights to improve

My situation, yet
a big move forward

Is met with more setbacks;
sometimes I wonder

How much longer I can
persist before I drop.

Wednesday

Cold air retreats for
a little while, warm relief
sweeps through this morning.

Bridge

It's the warmth she offered
as she laid on my lap

Is what I miss the most;
sitting patiently in the kitchen

For a meal or some
petting behind the ear.

She lived a long life,
yet it still wasn't enough,

As I still think of a spirit
youthful and free

On the other
side of the bridge.

Coating

Always
very peaceful
to the morning, captured
in the smooth sheets of ice coating
the ground.

Surprise

A nice surprise
as the day concludes,

My spirit enlivened
as he sends a message;

I ready myself, finishing
the tasks needing completion,

So I can leave, and be
in his arms once more.

Cold

Strong, freezing cold cuts
into the body before
we step foot outside.

Tread

Stretched thin
is my fragile
thread of opportunity;
I must tread with caution, so it
stays strong.

That Moment

That moment when
he tells me

'I feel like I'm in heaven
when you open that door'.

My heart sings,
your sweet words of

Devotion guiding my way
through the stressful times,

My soul leaving no room
For sadness.

Now some

two days of ignoring
my alarm clock, until Monday

Vision Board

As I construct my board,
I skim through my chosen quotes;

Words being a matter of life...
never feeling defeated
in the midst of defeat...

These words sang in my heart
in years' past, opening the door

To my soul; living, thriving...
how that music silenced
remains a mystery.

My board reflects a vision
waiting to reawaken.

Patient Mode

I wait for the warm welcome
that never comes,

Her absence being the wedge,
impacting our bond,

My expectant questions
met with unanswered texts

And empty phone calls.
My heart believes in a

Resolution, and my mind
switches into patient mode,

Until we are united
as a family once more.

Facade

I approach the
small brick building
with trepidation;

Its windows exuding light,
yet it shields the negative
beacon within.

I unlock the red door,
readying myself to fight
the wave of jealousy

Hiding behind the
inviting red facade.

Waking

Waking
to congestion,
yet that does not stop me
from getting ready for a new
work day.

Wonderland

All I've desired
lies a few feet away,
where my kindred rests,
painting the branch in a
crisp shade of ivory.

A gentle breeze guides me
toward my final destination,
as I join the others onto
my new, slender home,
resting my limbs,
blending in wintry life.

Expected

A new day glows;
cloudy, yet still

Shining brightly,
bringing promise

of treats laying within.
Life has a way

Of delivering new
surprises. I am not

Sure if I am prepared for
another jolt to the system,

Yet I think that is how
life operates,

Bringing people surprises
when least expected.
