Music In The Dark Haiku

Singing in the dark
Though you cannot see my face
You can hear my song

A usual day
But music prevails always
Notes among the grass

I wish you good dreams
Smiles until the light arrives
The day brings new songs


Dreaming Of Summer Haiku

Love is waking up
Curtains golden with sunlight
Your gentle breathing

Long bright yellow days
Hours of sun and of you
Exposed skin and hearts

Warm evenings outside
Talking ’til complete darkness
Listens unnoticed


You found me in the dark
You held out your hand
You never let go
My light
My music
My laughter
My love


The Wait

They say
The build up
Is better than the moment
The anticipation
The wait
Like December
And Christmas Eve
The chase
Is better
Than the catch
And yet
At the end of my line
Is you
Worth every moment
Of the wait


Then And Now

Then, it was learning
A complicated path of confusion
And eventually, understanding
Who knew there were so many lessons to be taught
Who knew I was so lost and clueless

Now, it is love
A constant
A softness
A sigh of relief
At last, I am here
And love
It is you


Still Too Far

Some nights
The mere sight
Of your outline in the dark
Makes me weep
Hot tears
Desperate tears
Desperate to be nearer to you
Yet there are only inches between us
I can reach out and touch you
And yet
You are still too far



To her, he glowed

A light source in a dark place

Like a moth to a flame

She was drawn to his luminescence 

His brightness

His glow

He lit her from the inside

A warmth she’d never known
