New Poems

to the one i'm waiting for
I'm homesick
For a place I haven't yet found,
For a person I haven't yet become acquainted with.
Floating in limbo is uncomfortable,
And I'm at unease. 
Because time is fleeting, 
And I so desperately want to know who you are.

She was a ruby in the rough.
Red when people were being mistreated.
Hot lava when she saw injustice.

A spectacular combination 
of love and hope.

Internally, an earth angel.
Her outside edges were sharp and off-putting.
She had prickly points.
