Kind eyes peer
out of pages
of grace replace
the sun-The sun
color --into his
cheeks and face
hints of roses.
my eyes as they
Obviously we have
met here before..
by this world
We come back
There could be more
So we are here
to watch and wait

Green bark a prism creates,
Feel the pull of earth, you must.
Rotates, a slime of endless hates,
Can hold me not, this world’s crust.
Friendship’s ties, isolation Deflates,
Succumbs, my spaceship, to bitter rust.
Mist, my soul forever permeates,
Lift-off, booms the rocket’s thrust.
My spirit when light returns, elates,
Swamps swell, swallowed hope’s swirling dust.
Trapped, I am, until student from fate
Arrives to learn; Cloud City or bust.
