Ghosts

Skies, full-
expecting snow,
blown by
winds,
elsewhere. Mountains
near, taunting
tops, powder
covered days,
past, still
snowmen,
twirling,
swirling
flakes, winter’s
laughter, care-
less joy.
Snow balls
in flight-
Christmas
memories.

Blind

These eyes
cannot see
the path
ahead.
Ears, deafened-
cannot discern;
my soul
resounds, with
Your voice-
calling. Walking
by faith.
Knowing, my
destination,
my desire;
to reach out,
touch your
face,
knowing,
as I,
am known.

Sacramento Storms

water spilling
covering streets,
rain whispers
ssssssshhhhh sssssshhhhh
branches whipped
ttttthhhhwaaack
striking shed sides,
downed lines
hissssssssss
eyes glint,
deadly-
winter
ways,
winter
days…
