Within without

Heart sits and eyes stare
Cool screen shimmer
Within your voice
Light laughter and smiles
Yet I am without
Your warm touch.
Night falls silently
Eyes look above to see
First stars in so very long,
I wonder if you too
Share the vision,
Wishing for haste
And a safe homecoming
Within my soul
Never without
This love for you.

Thoughts to my love so far away…not forgotten, just missed deeply.

Seasons dream

Seasons move my mind
Through thought this head
Wrapped round
Energy spent focused
On the brightness
Of this sunny side.
Fall she leaves me damp and cool
Spring she gives new life
Winters ice kills aimlessly
But summer touches gently.
Her sun dappled happiness
Through branches shade
She finds me
Eyes closed moving
Softly in a breeze.
Dreams in darkness turn me
And I twist their stories
Back to good,
Impossible battle
Between dark and light
And I am left victorious
To enter the white room
Somewhere in head
Challenged to stay focused
Drained I succumb to better moments
Breathing softly
Slipping back under
To the season of truth
To the beauty that is found
In light.

Empty stars

There lies a sadness
For the sight of empty stars
Eyes searching skies
Finding only a deathly emptiness
Clouds cover lights
While vessels wait
To cast aside the dreams
The wishes
The jar empty
Waiting.
Three sister stars
Clear glass
The wonder of what will fill
The hollow feeling
As patience takes a toll
The dark moon laughs
In the universe
Waiting to change and reflect
It’s lovely shades on the tiny specks
That embellish the cloak
Of midnight.
