A Making

A going has to come, I know
An acquiescence to the shortened days
A refusing to refuse the night

I’ll clothe myself in skin-tone colors
I will stop hearing creation’s groan silenced
I’ll start feeling good, acting great, again

Original Thought Credit: Nina Simone, “Feeling Good”

Double Helix

Mirrors and many things
Left behind
No longer serving to remind
All she disappeared into
It was a hollow
Worse than silence

Comes now each new day
A ringing out
In Chickadee song
So sweet, all I long for now
Is to hear her DNA daily
Feel her backbone & warrior call

Covered

5 minutes to sunrise
Dash out

Climb to the highest height
Catch in your arms 
All I’ve promised from the East 

Add hope of your own

With all your might 
Fling-far to the West
Our new pact

5 minutes to sunrise
I dash out….
