Walking in my back porch last night
nursing a sleepless body,
cajoling a hunched soul
I suddenly realized
my blood has gone cold.
The love, the passion, the desire to be …
are worthless thoughts!
when tempests end
ecstasy takes a wing.
I cannot hold, his roving heart
once mine now gone to the next call
his touch on my hands, my face – an anticipation – lingers.
I let him go for he was never mine.
He needs to learn to navigate, to keep afloat a steady helm.
The night owl
hooting across the lake
was looking for a prey !
the cheap baits, hooked on a line
in search of prize catch
