a winter memory

a memory from long ago –
one morning I awake to
my backyard transformed
into a winter wonderland
I played for hours in the snow
until my mom called me in
I huddled near the heater
to warm my ice-cold insides
aided by hot chocolate

I wrote love poems
expressing my desires
to carry your heart
a spatter of ink
across countless lined pages
were words of love songs
a mere fantasy
another had claimed your heart
I’m left with just dreams

a mother's story

from a tiny baby 
she watched her
grow to an adult 
she barely knows 
perhaps she was too 
harsh in her rearing
but she only did 
what she thought best 
from afar she watches 
her hatchling spread 
her vast wings, soaring 
towards endless clouds

swept away

in moonlight
I search for
your smile
bright as stars
my heart is
swept away
silver stars
sing love songs
until dawn
