Silent

Not all deserts are wastelands.  
Not all deserts are dry.  
Not all deserts are visible. 
Not all bird songs can be heard.  
Not all humans sing to be heard. 
And yet, here we are , 
The birds, and I,
Singing in the desert, 
Invisible and silent.

Starlight Stones

Together,
We dance,
On tiny stones
Of starlight.
Our pathway,
Illuminated,
Is between
Darkness and night.
Sweet scents
Softly sing
Of white flowers
Blooming
In dreams.
Each touch
Carries
The grace of
Eternal breath.

Ending

Convulsing
In paroxysms
Of grief
I have
Become
My own
Grandmother
Deceased
Long ago
Alone
Watching
Water flow
Ancestor
Mothers
Whispering
Our lives
Are now
Your
Daughter
Sorrow
Dismissed
By yowling
Pain
