Empty Drawers

Ghosts reside here
Ignorant of a life once
treasured
Silence hangs boughs
Dripping with lost anticipation
Waited
but lost
And now the drawers are empty
And there is nothing to fill them
With.

Days have passed

The days have passed into fuzzy waves
like looking at a tree’s leaves when the sun is peeking through
and so it is, this life, this dream of a dream
living and breathing without moments
without recall
just waiting for the sun to set so I can
see the ocean of dreams meant for us
now meant for me and try to fathom
which one I shall choose to rescue
and bring to the shore of my soul
it is not going to be easy
when the days have passed into fuzzy waves
like looking at a tree’s leaves when the sun is peeking through

– no title yet –

She dreams of different times and clearer places

when feet danced free in wanderlust and hair less gray

fell back in unboxed color or price

when tears fell infrequent and life grew with

a dreamlike uncertainty

But choices and voices and volleys

of incandescent lights

lured her into a belief

her dream was flickering over

edge of aluminum and potted daisy.

The sun set.

The mosquitos and cicadas

sing in backyard bands

with fences

fences with fences

and rows of

gated glories long gone

she waits for night to pass

for moon and her nonsense

to sink once more

so she can pretend they

don’t exist.
