Your Eyes Are There

The tree stays empty
No bird no breeze no glow worm
The soil looks morose  

Dense clouds have gathered
On and around the grey tree
Blooms are comatose

Getting rid of frost
Only last night it blossomed
Into a fountain

Alas, to no end
No bird from your shrubbery
Winter in my breath

Up and underneath
This load of cloud with no face
Restlessness for rain

No, no more moaning
For I know your eyes are there
If not now, later

None knows how and when
Your pink pigeons smile and fly
My flame is orange

Broken Branch

Broken Branch
         by Amy Swanson, 2008

Winter-gray tree branch
       Hangs low, stricken by the storm
               Broken... but alive.

One wake-up away
From the best day of your life.
Life’s just a crapshoot.

   relying on chance 
trying to find a needle 
   inside a haystack

a well-balanced choice
  a winner or a loser
   you can bet on it

     when tossing a coin
the most probable outcome
  would be heads or tails

     lack of dialogue
increases the probable
   failure of marriage

        waking up early
does not always guarantee
    you’ll see the sun rise

  weighing pros and cons
when faced with a decision
  between right or wrong

Living Seasons Through

Bodies together
Pressed against the cold, harsh night
We hold on to love

In the sweet, soft spring
We lay on a tall, steep hill
And hold on to love

Summer's baking heat
Hiding in the shade of trees
Still holding our love

The leaves are falling
Crunching beneath our footsteps
Forever, our love

We'll last through seasons
Enjoy our love together
Just you wait, my love.

      the serpent sleeps
coiled, reclining at my feet
      dreaming of deceit

   tempting marshmallows:
do not rush. Delay will bring

       morning dew glistens
she cried her eyes out all night
      let the sun shine bright

        almond trees blossom
lightning flashes, thunder drawls
            do not be afraid

                                Destiny dances!*

                                                Then watched as I jumped...
                                                Will you always catch me???

Into the blue

Into the blue

dark clouds evanesce
as eyes stare into the blue
ecstasy shimmers ....

serene ocean depths
awaiting reconnaissance 
undulate their throbs ....
