Pushing Back

I dislike
how night
welcomes me,
freeing my will
into the arms of
creeping shadows
just past
midnight
as the soul
pushes back
against
day and sun

Our Words

cloud shadows
silently pass
over your eyes,
brushing out
the winds of
unanswered
prayers
as reflections
of us
drift down
from above
onto paths
where rain
cannot quench
the fire of
our words
from the years
of tides

Shadow Print

her soft thoughts
brushed through
my hair
as she spoke to me

her shadow print
cooled my skin,
warming me
to the image,
like a verse of song
rising to the surface
within a dream
where
you hold it,
a flower
never fading.
