got hooked in my ear a whisper so gentle
strayed for awhile got lost in a circle
sounds vibrating and fear was instilled
i broke down awhile ’till spaces were filled

thoughts would leap from case to case
doubting views and notions, dozens of “what ifs”
the world is a wheel spinning slow in place
judge not my heart to be real or solidly stiff

voices emanating from here and there
awash with unheard silence and heeded glare
sailing across my mind finding its port
to dock and pick up new freight to transport

felt the sadness of voices now i hear
seeing pits of yesterdays filled with history’s tears
heart and mind have toiled in tandem hand in hand
rough chants of the past demand the current stand

Glisten in the Shallows

as i turn my head here and there
another spot of gift
exchanged greetings …

no one had stayed long enough to endure
the discomfort and injuries of anyone’s feet
nature’s sharp-edged rocks on the stretch

cool and lovely white sands to wade
glisten in the shallows of the distance

hidden under the nippy calm waters
