2020-12-04 – Feather Foot

it’s hard to drive a
hungry heart
with foot’s

full weight on
the brakes,

hesitation marks
on both eyes
confirm

faith’s desire to steer
car through the
worst of
life’s

lost storms,

best ease my toes
off the brake if
i hope to
reach

a richer
love,

if there’s a spark
of chance i’m
not too
late.

for the stretch
ahead’s
not..

yet been
washed away.

2020-12-04 – The Crack of Dawn

when each day
begins at
night,

it makes for prolonged
and welcome
stretches
of calm

before the
waking world

joins in, before
all freshly
risen

litter the
room

once still
with silence,

my heart caged by
self-reliance,

when each day
begins at
night,

i wince at each
splash of
light,

and at each smile
whiter than
mine.

..and that crack of dusk is wake up call for a few of us.
