Light & Shadow

Autumn & Cold 

shadows 

roaming by

duskfall. 

Forgotten

moments 

are all spun

(out)

& the Spider’s

last silks

are lost.

Departing Sunlight

(still) shines 

an old poem

amid sullen 

petals.

Faith of Heart

T. Byron K.

In the stillness of this solitudedreams clinging like rain to my blood soul

I did know a caressing of invisible hands

the presence of some monster unformed

spoke, giving me reasons to pray

and finally, invariably

allowing real freedom-

fear which brings me nothing

pallid death riding like a virgin in the dark night

all matters of wishlessness or anguish 

rush toward the stems bloom

a mindful tomb opening in the light of

this first spring.

We are the wellspring of ancient desire.

Through the mist

I see orange hell fire

the age old contempt for man is burning

I am lonely

we are alone until 

this place anoints the bleak fire

burning our soul’s gestation

Know your way to God.

Winter 1993

Ache

Catie Craig

An ache

It resonates throughout my body

Beating in time with my heartbeats

Like a drum

It’s a pain I can’t place

Longing?

Loneliness?

For now I weep petals

A flower pot

Sitting in the dark

Sometimes I wonder what I’m doing here

Sometimes I wonder what I’m doing here

Although my loving children are near

There are brief moments of good

But in between I’m knocking on wood

What I do somewhat matters

But mostly it’s only a clatter 

A distraction which wears my soul

A dark stain, a hard lump of coal

But not the kind of coal with fire starter

The kind which only lights if you barter

You can have my home if you’ll just light

But even then no one hears the plight 

I could go but I hold onto hope

That someday I’ll find a way to cope
