Mulberry Glen

Silent rapture of autumn
mingle mulberry mummers unmoved
across ocean of cian moors
to deep to cross without drowning

Thus we are left on wind and glen
suffering only a hope
To whisper it lasting

Speechless

Some days silence is all I have to write with
my soul paper upon which to scribe
and my heart the only witness

…but even this is loud.

Cold Floor…

Cold floor

bitter dream

I sit

lingering frustration of

words remaining sealed

in cages

mounts fierce echoes in

silence.

Hands long to move

like old ink across new paper

to the ticking of thought

and fascination of favor

but for days

the sun and moon have greeted

a blank slated mind

unable to untangle

and bring forth even a prayer

to honor the blessing of breath,

no only

silence.

Eyes scanned the testament of nature

searched blade and throng of

fowl floating in storm billowed cloud,

approached and reproached

the edges of nothing for a glimpse of

Gods

a muse

a spark given

if even out of pity

deafening silence within.

but I have come back with

silence.

and languish

here in this

space

the canvas

blank

the

lined horizon of possibilities

clean

and the audience of

futures beyond me

remain

silent.

See me as I am

{in honor of today – Day of Silence}

I speak not a word
for the word distracts you
from the reality we are the same
I walk into a store and am
turned away
because you do not serve my kind
I walk down the aisle
and I am arrested
because the constitution has no room
I am discovered
and dragged out and beaten
because my love is hated
I am vocal
and you see an agenda
instead of our sameness
so today
I speak not a word
So you can only do one thing

SEE ME as I AM

Equal.

express yourself.

express yourself.
And yes in some ways I mean like Madonna – but today, I just mean
don’t.
be.
silent.
Find a word, say it.
Find art, and make it.
Find emotion, and pay it some attention.
don’t.
be.
silent.

express yourself.
And yes in some ways I mean like every other song you have fallin in love with, but today, I just mean.

Speak.
your.
mind.
Because yours is beautiful creation
a God given,
blessed beyond recognition
of greatness waiting to be fulfilled
in some alchemy of words
mixed on paper.
Speak
your.
mind.

EXPRESS yourself.
And no I don’t mean anything other than what I am saying
Don’t.
BE.
SILENT!
Don’t let this day go down without speaking what you need to.
find the power in you and unleash it
let the winds of change manipulate
every notion of who they said you should be
– sit there silent girl as the good lord told you to be
And seethe at the rim of almost
explode over into the universe
and make even the stars shimmer
in the new world you are
creating.

Do you get what I am saying?
Do you
hear what I am screaming
on this digital page of
white pixels and
the inevitable tick and tack typing
you can’t hear feverishly
making my mind spill out for you
to read.

express yourself.
and I mean in every way…
don’t.
be.
silent.
