Dreaming in voices

Lightning in the midnight hour

Accompanied by silence

and I wait on the rain to follow

Yet hear nothing but the sound of your voice.

Whispered hymn like a lullaby 

Changes through the years from teen to now

As I move from shadows into the light

Illuminated song on my lips.

You are everywhere I turn now,

Time not quelling the memory,

But as each moment passes I feel the touch,

The hint of soft laughter

And I fall back into the warmth

Of yesterday once more.

There is no witness here

As I stand in the hour when the world sleeps,

I sway to the rhythm of the wind that stirs

And you are here

Gentle like a petal,

As soft as a dream remembered.

There is no rain yet

And the world turns dark

Lightning passes like a train on its way

And an engine moves past down the highway

The rattle of pipes disappears

And I turn and slip within.

  1. Funny you ask…feeling a bit weary with the length of this recovery period (?). I have three doctor appointments coming up–jaw, heart, integrative medicine. I’m excited about the third appointment. Hoping for more insight into how I can care for my body right now. The weariness comes and goes–today it came. Lucy is doing just great, by the way! My closest ally day and night. πŸ™‚
