Respite

Missing it all again
Between the raindrops
Beneath the water's surface
Believing all gets ruined 
But moving forward just a step
By step. By step. By step
Covers so much ground 
To endings & beginnings
Missing it all again.

Port wine tawny red,
My companion pours a dream
between the nightmares howling
A brief respite from the hurricane
Moving, circular and rounding  
A corner on Mesa street 
Crossroad and corners 
between the nightmares
Pouring forth another dream
And respite in your eyes.


Sunlit meadows in the Spring
Are your eyes 
Illuminating, captivating, 
Springs of clear and sparkling waters,
Quenching thirst and longing
Belonging in the moment. 
Sunlit meadows are your eyes
That hold my heart in a moment
Longing to remain forever
With sunlit meadows in Spring.
